For the next week, Central Current reporters will be riding buses and interviewing riders to gather perspectives on public transportation in Central New York.

The project was in part spurred by the renewed focus on public transportation after Micron announced a $100 billion investment in Central New York.

Advocates and officials have said public transportation will have to improve to make Micron a boon for the whole region.

Right now, public transportation service in the region lacks convenience and frequency, advocates have said.

Centro, the regional transportation authority, has said it will reimagine its services. The organization wants to make bus rapid transit happen by 2026 and has started an outreach campaign with the Syracuse Metropolitan Transportation Council.
