BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (WDTN) - The next chapter in the bus stop battle in Beavercreek is expected to play out tonight.
The Beavercreek City Council will vote on a resolution approving an application by the RTA to install three bus stops in the city.
The city hired a private transit consultant who approved the plans with a few minor conditions including design, distance requirements, and seating areas.
Beavercreek hired the transit consultant after the Federal Highway Administration found evidence of discrimination in the application process, intended or not.
With the consultant's study complete, the next step will be to vote on the resolution, which council is scheduled to do tonight beginning at 6:00.
Prior to that meeting, the civil rights group LEAD, called Leaders for Equality and Action will hold a prayer vigil at Beavercreek City Hall beginning at 5:30.
LEAD believes these bus stops will provide open access to entry level jobs at dining establishments and SOIN Hospital, as well as provide access to educational opportunities.
