The RTC is welcoming community input as we begin to develop a service change to RTC transit services later this year.

The RTC analyzes its transit operations annually to maximize resources and efficiency to provide quality customer service to our riders. This involves tracking ridership data and allocating buses and other resources to more productive routes for efficiency, and operating within financial constraints. Several changes are being considered so that we may provide reliable and quality transit service. This may include timing adjustments and route modifications. The RTC will also present proposed changes to RTC ACCESS, and fare policy changes.

The RTC is inviting our community to join us at one of our upcoming open houses. We’re holding open houses starting on February 20 at a number of locations throughout our community. We want to hear from everyone as we work toward finalizing a plan that may be implemented in September. Proposed changes to RTC transit services will be presented to the RTC Board at a future board meeting for their direction and approval.
