Transit Development Plan

Transit Development Plan

The City’s Transit Development Plan (TDP) presents operational, financial, and capital improvements for supporting and implementing its public transit program. The TDP, covering a five-year horizon, includes strategies to enhance service efficiency and effectiveness as well as how to finance implementation of those strategies. These strategies reflect findings from rider and non-rider (community) input as well as a quantitative assessment of transit system performance.
