2040 REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION PLAN UPDATE

The 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) helps guide improvements in the region, sustaining the economy, increasing livability and accommodating growth.  The document also outlines the guiding principles of the RTC and is developed with extensive public input.  The public outreach process is now underway as the RTC updates the RTP, which is the long-range transportation plan for the region.  Outreach efforts that will be taking place during the next few months include forums for youths, seniors, veterans and on the topics of freight and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  Several public meetings will also be held, and the RTC Board will review the updates for possible adoption late this year.

RTC 2015 ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND A LOOK AHEAD TO 2016

Throughout 2015, the RTC delivered significant projects, provided safe and reliable transit and planned for the future of the Truckee Meadows.  Many projects and plans that began last year are continuing into 2016 as we work to create safety, improve mobility and connectivity, increase transportation choices and contribute to the region’s economic prosperity.  The projects and programs we deliver were possible because of the public participation and input we had to develop them.  Click here for a look at some of the agency’s accomplishments and a preview of what’s ahead.

SHORT RANGE TRANSIT PLAN

The RTC began the process of updating the FY 2017-2021 Short Range Transit Plan (SRTP) in November 2015. The SRTP is RTC’s business plan for transit services in our community over the next five years. It also serves as the short range transportation element of the 20-Year Regional Transportation Plan which is now in the process of being updated. Development of the SRTP is a community-based planning process. The SRTP reviews all RTC transit services including: RIDE, RAPID, ACCESS, carpools and vanpools. 
An effective and efficient transit system benefits everyone whether they use public transit or not, and is essential to a vibrant and prosperous economy.  You're invited to participate and share your ideas!  Submit comments to http://rtctransitplan.com.
Upcoming events for this project are a presentation at the RTC Board Annual Workshop on April 15.  A community Open House will be held on May 5, 2016 at RTC 4TH STREET STATION from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. 
The draft SRTP will be presented at the RTC Board meeting on July 15, 2016; the final SRTP may be approved and adopted to the August 19, 2016 Board meeting.
