Proposed transit changes
After the multi-year Iowa City Area Transit Study, the Transportation Department is presenting proposed changes to the area's transit system. Changes include more frequent service, same routes days, nights, and weekends, more access to areas of high need, a two-year Sunday service pilot, and much more. For more information, visit our webpage dedicated to the proposed changes.
A few documents to summarize the proposed changes include:
- An overview of the transit changes
- A summary of fare changes
- A map of each route with their changes:
Iowa City Transit operates every half-hour on most routes during "rush" hour, 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Hourly service runs 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., and all day Saturday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. There is no service on Sunday.
The Parking Division of the Iowa City Transportation and Resource Management Department oversees the operation of parking garages, parking lots, and on-street (metered) parking. Parking Services enforces parking regulation in the central business district, while the Police Department enforces parking regulations in residential areas.
Recognizing that there is a high demand for parking in downtown Iowa City, Parking Services promotes turnover of on-street (metered) parking spaces in the core of the downtown. Customers with longer-term needs are encouraged to use the garages or on streets in outlying areas.
7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday
