Dubuque seeks input to rebrand public transit

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- The City of Dubuque's Keyline Transit System is looking to make some changes in the next few months.  Those changes include a new name and brand. And Dubuque residents are invited to share their ideas for a new name for the service.

The City of Dubuque recently awarded the management contract for its public transit system to the East Central Intergovernmental Association (ECIA), effective on July 1.  Now they plan to modify Dubuque's fixed route, mini-bus, and trolley services to better meet the needs of residents.

"The existing Keyline Transit name and brand represent our past approach. As we work with ECIA to improve Dubuque's public transit system, it's important that the image change as well. We welcome and encourage the public to provide input in this process," Economic Development Director David Heiar said.

Interested residents can participate in the process in two ways.  You can submit ideas online at www.cityofdubuque.org/transit or drop their ideas off in suggestion boxes at the following locations by July 26, 2010: Dubuque City Hall Utility Billing Desk, 50 W 13th Street, Carnegie-Stout Public Library 2nd Floor Reference Desk, 360 W. 11th Street, Historic Federal Building Main Lobby, 350 W 6th Street, Keyline Management Office Main Lobby, 2401 Central Avenue

Another way to get involved and provide input is by attending the public brainstorming session on Thursday, July 29, from 2:30 - 4:30 p.m. at the Prescott Elementary Neighborhood Resource Center, 1151 White Street.
