Boise looking for new downtown transportation plan

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - The City of Boise is looking to upgrade it's transportation plan known as the Downtown Circulator. They want to finish a study from 2009, and are looking to the public to see what vehicles and routes they want to see.

The city is looking at several options including different types of light rail, and buses. While the routes would be for downtown, they could extend to BSU and the Boise Depot.

The process of the study would take about 14 months before it would be finished to allow the public enough time to comment on the proposed plans.

Officials said there needs to be plans in place in order to get federal funding when the time comes to actually get the system going.
