RTC Seeks Public Input on Proposed RTC Transit Service Changes

Posted: Updated:

The Regional Transportation Commission wants your input as they begin to develop their annual transit service change that could be implemented this fall. Numerous changes are being considered, including timing adjustments and route modifications. The RTC will also present proposed changes to RTC ACCESS and fare policy changes.

The RTC analyzes its transit operations annually to maximize resources and efficiency to provide quality customer service to riders. This involves tracking ridership data and allocating buses and other resources to more productive routes for efficiency, and operating within financial constraints. 

After gathering public input, the RTC will present the proposed transit service changes to the RTC Board in March for ACCESS changes and in April for RIDE and fare policy changes. The RTC Board will then give direction and approval.

The RTC invites the community to give input at upcoming open houses and community presentations.
