Knoxville Area Transit (KAT) will be holding meetings to gather input on the downtown trolley system. The first meeting on Tuesday, January 18th will be an informal 'open house' meeting from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Knoxville Station's Training Room, 301 Church Avenue. The public can come by at any time and provide input and hear more about the system. A more formal meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 25th at 5:30 p.m. in the Market House Room of the Chamber Partnership Offices on Market Square.
The public is encouraged to attend and provide input.
The downtown trolley system serves a variety of needs including connecting UT to downtown; connecting visitors from hotels to the convention center; connecting outlying parking to downtown employment; and connecting Knoxville Station to downtown. KAT hopes to determine the best way to serve these needs given the continuing growth and change to downtown.
For those unable to attend a meeting, comments can also be made by calling KAT at 865-637-3000 or providing comments via the KAT website at www.katbus.com. Written comments can be sent to KAT Trolley Input, 301 Church Avenue, Knoxville, TN 37915.
