The city's draft final implementation plan was prepared by LSC Transportation Consultants, a transportation and traffic engineering firm with offices in Colorado, California and Nevada. The plan takes what have been general concepts, created over many years of previous transit studies, to the point of actual implementation.
Broadly speaking, the transit service plan is focused on two areas: (1) enhanced circulation service within Sedona city limits and the Village of Oak Creek, and (2) development of a visitor-oriented shuttle that would be extended to serve Oak Creek Canyon and forest trailheads within and surrounding the city. The majority of the funding for this Sedona in Motion transit plan was provided by a federal grant, with $30,000 coming from city SIM funds and $10,000 from Coconino County. The Sedona Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Bureau has pledged $10,000 for potential additional development work.
The technical advisory committee that has marshalled the plan through the study and input processes included members from the city, Arizona Department of Transportation, Sedona Fire District, U.S. Forest Service, Coconino County, Arizona State Parks, Cottonwood Area Transit, and the Sedona Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Bureau.
