The objective of this study is to examine the feasibility of establishing a fixed route bus service to the East County region of Franklin County. A primary motivation for this study came out of the recent public outreach process that was conducted for the Franklin Regional Transit Authority’s 2015 Regional Transit Plan and the update to the Franklin Regional Council of Government’s 2016 Franklin County Regional Transportation Plan. The outreach showed that the expansion of public transit in the
region is a major desire by many residents. In particular, county residents expressed a need for additional routes, higher frequency of bus runs, and service in the evenings and on the weekends.
