2010 - 2014 City of Fitchburg Transit Plan
By Resolution R-36-10, approved on Tuesday, May 25, 2010, the City of Fitchburg adopted its first transit plan titled the 2010-2014 City of Fitchburg Transit Plan. This transit plan is intended to develop a vision for the level of transit service that should be provided in Fitchburg, allow the city to be better prepared to implement improvements to the system and budget appropriately for those improvements, and will provide a useful tool to the newly-formed Regional Transit Authority Board as they begin to consider the local and regional transit needs of the Dane County area.
Fitchburg is committed to improving public transportation services. If you have suggestions, questions, comments, or concerns related to improving or expanding transit services in Fitchburg please or attend a Transportation and Transit Commission (TTC) Meeting.
