LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The Nebraska Department of Transportation is conducting a feasibility study on starting bus service between Lincoln and Omaha.

The department is urging people to attend one of the meetings scheduled to discuss the possibility. Department director Kyle Schneweis says gauging the interest “of Nebraska motorists in a Lincoln to Omaha intercity bus route is an important step in meeting our goal of maximizing existing transportation resources.”

A meeting will run from 5 to 7 p.m. Sept. 4 at the Greenwood Fire Hall, 251 Broad St., in Greenwood.

The second is set to run from 5 to 7 p.m. Sept. 5 at the Lancaster County Extension Office, 444 Cherrycreek Road, Lincoln.

The final meeting is set to run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 6 at the Salvation Army Omaha Kroc Center in Omaha, 2825 Y St.
