CONNECT
Transit Plan
2032

The Michiana Area Council of Governments (MACOG) and South Bend Public Transportation Corporation (Transpo), through a Federal Transit Authority (FTA) grant, are conducting the CONNECT Transit Plan.

CONNECT will study the Interurban Trolley and Transpo fixed routes transit systems that service South Bend, Mishawaka, Elkhart and Goshen in St. Joseph and Elkhart counties. 

The plan will look at alternative ways to balance important but competing priorities like improving the frequency and span of service versus adding new service areas and new routes. The result will be a 10-year plan to improve transit services across the region.  
 

Plan Goals

  • Identify efficiencies in the system

  • Reassess community priorities

  • Design a bus network to match those priorities

  • Develop longer-term plans for transit improvement and possible expansion


CONNECT is the future of transit. The last study completed was in 2010 so many of the region's needs and goals have changed. In order to make sure that future bus network design is right for everyone today and tomorrow, MACOG and Transpo invite leaders, riders and residents to get involved throughout the 18 month planning process.

Phase 1 Key Choices was completed in March and Phase 2 Concepts is now underway.
