Transit Development Plans
Transit system development plans refine and detail the recommendations for transit services set forth in the regional transportation plan. These plans are prepared at the request of transit service providers in the region. More specifically, the plans are intended to serve the following four major purposes:
- To evaluate the performance of an existing transit system, including the effectiveness of the existing bus route structure and services and the financial performance of the system and its component bus routes so as to identify areas of effective and efficient transit service operation, along with areas of ineffective and/or inefficient operation.
- To identify the transit service needs of residents that are not being met, or are not being met well, by the existing transit system, including travel which cannot be made within reasonable travel times on the existing system, or cannot be made on the existing system at all.
- To design and evaluate transit system improvement alternatives that address the service problems and deficiencies of the existing system identified in the performance evaluation and the identified unmet transit service needs.
- To recommend a five year plan of operating and capital improvements that address the service needs and performance deficiencies identified.
