    Valley Regional Transit will host three open houses next week to get public comment on proposed changes to the region's bus system. Perhaps the biggest change would be the implementation of 15-minute service on State Street during peak hours. Currently, the service runs about every 30 minutes. Additionally, the plan would add Saturday service on State Street every 30 minutes. It currently runs every hour. The Tuesday, June 19, open house will run from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Main Street Station in downtown Boise. Another will be held Wednesday, June 20, at the same time and place. The third open house is scheduled for 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 21, at the Happy Day Transit Center in Caldwell.
