The purpose of this study is to review the existing transit services being offered to the public within Region Six and to introduce a comprehensive program or guide for the future development of those services. This is to be accomplished by determining the transit needs and desires of the region. From these established needs, desires, goals and objectives, alternative transit service concepts will be proposed in order to help meet the unmet needs and standards of the present system and/or service. The Region Six planning area includes Hardin, Marshall, Poweshiek, and Tama Counties. The area is approximately 2457 square miles in size with a current population of about 104,000 people. The main function of the areawide planning agency is to provide planning, technical and advisory assistance to its members. This assistance includes such things as: providing a forum by which separate communities can discuss common problems and seek solutions which are mutually beneficial, to identify and document needs, and to foster, develop and review plans for the coordinated development of the area. The planning agency also tries to educate the public on regional problems and the need for cooperation in dealing with those issues. Other functions include planning regional facilities and/or programs and establishing regional policies.
