WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

At a standing room only meeting about downtown transportation, a lot of people had opinions.

The City of Wichita is working on a downtown development plan for transportation issues. The first listening session happened Tuesday night at Distillery 244.

Right now, city buses only run at certain times and the Q-Line only runs along Douglas in Downtown. The city is meeting with downtown residents to see if that should change.

“These types of situation allow us to focus on what the important needs are,” said Mike Tann, the Transit Director for City of Wichita. “We want the community to define what it is we become.”

Workers will analyze answers before making a final proposal in a few months.
