Community Engagement, Part 1

En español

“Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.”

— Jane Jacobs, the Death and Life of Great American Cities

TOD Public Meeting

We think the same is true for public transportation. Community involvement in the planning and improvement of our services is important to our entire community. Over the past two decades, public involvement has helped shape nearly every aspect of GBT services from our routes and schedules, bus shelters and hubs, the design of our website, and even the look of the buses.

All meetings have a Spanish interpreter available.

We are committed to engaging people in our community—from riders to workers to residents—to learn more and influence bus service improvements. We hope you’ll connect with us and get involved.

Bus Tracker Outage
GBT understands the importance of the Bus Tracker to our riders and our staff has been working to restore the service. However, the issues surrounding this outage have proven to be difficult to resolve. We continue to work on getting the Bus Tracker back online and thank our riders for their continued patience.

We estimate that Bus Tracker will be back online by early next week.
