Sioux Falls Public Transit Advisory Board to consider changes to transit network

May 10, 2024 (SIOUX FALLS, S.D.): At the Public Transit Advisory Board meeting on May 20, 2024, held at 3:30 p.m at City Center, Room 110, 231 N. Dakota Ave., Sioux Falls, SD 57104, there will be a public hearing on transformational improvements for the Sioux Falls’ public transit network. Sioux Area Metro’s new transit provider, Via, will present the SAM Reimagined plan, which includes improvements to bus routes to more direct trips, easier transfers, and shorter wait times; expanded availability and frequency of public transit for more residents in Sioux Falls; and expanded Via SAM On Demand service to the entire city, with a focus on areas that are not within walking distance from bus stops. Residents will only gain, not lose, transit service as a result of the SAM Reimagined plan.   

The public is encouraged to attend the meeting on May 20 to learn more about the proposed changes and share input. Public Engagement opportunities have been provided online through May 8th as well as an Open House held May 6th. Pending approval by PTAB, Sioux Falls City Council will consider the improvements to the bus routes in June.
