CARTA will provide Care-A-Van services to anyone who wishes to attend the July 13th workshop, which will discuss future transportation options for the City of East Ridge. The City has partnered with CARTA to explore what services are desired out of its citizens and business owners.
The workshop will begin at 5:30pm Thursday, July 13th, ahead of the regularly scheduled agenda and council meetings. East Ridge residents can schedule a pickup from CARTA’s Care-A-Van transit service by calling (423) 698-9038. Residents will need to specify that they live in East Ridge and wish to schedule a shuttle ride to the July 13th workshop/council meeting.
For those that are unable to attend the meeting, City and CARTA staff want to give those citizens an opportunity to express their opinions on expanded services to East Ridge. Staff has created a Survey Monkey survey, which is accessible on the City’s website (www.eastridgetn.gov) and social media pages. The survey will be available until July 9th. Here is a direct link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ER_CARTA
For those citizens who do not have internet access at home, they are welcome to take the survey at the East Ridge City Library during normal operating hours. For a listing of those hours, call the East Ridge City Library at 423-867-READ (7323) or visit www.eastridgetn.gov.
