University Community

University community encouraged to participate in survey to help inform Athens County’s Transit Development Planning

Hocking, Athens and Perry County Community Action (HAPCAP) are developing a new Transit Development Plan (TDP) to understand the needs of and better serve the growing Athens and surrounding communities. 

The new plan will help Athens Public Transit (APT) and Athens On-Demand Transit support those traveling via public transit throughout Athens County, including Athens, The Plains, Chauncey, Albany and Nelsonville.

Survey feedback from the University community will help HAPCAP to provide safe and reliable transportation services, including via OHIO’s Bobcat Pass Program, for students, faculty, staff, residents, workers and visitors to the community over the next decade.

HAPCAP’s Transit Survey link is available online

About OHIO’s Bobcat Pass Program

OHIO’s Bobcat Pass Program is a partnership between Ohio University and the City of Athens that enables faculty, staff and students to ride APT routes free of charge utilizing their University ID. Riders simply present their valid University ID to bus drivers at designated APT routes for unlimited fare travel. Transit vehicles provide accessibility accommodations.
