StarTran is conducting a Multimodal Transit Transfer Center (MTTC) Feasibility and Concept Design Study. The Study will assess sites in downtown Lincoln to identify a new location for a transfer facility and improvements that can best serve StarTran's riders. The study is looking for community input to help guide a transparent process that will develop a needs based assessment to inform selection of the NTTC site and passenger amenities.
