RiverCities Transit (RCT) staff drafts the Transit Development Plan (TDP) annually. The Cowlitz Transit Authority (CTA) then approves it. It fulfills RCWs 35.58.2795 and 35.58.2796. These laws require the creation of a Public Transportation System Six-year Transit Plan and an Annual Report, respectively.
The Washington State Department of Transportation is required to develop an annual report that summarizes the status of public transportation systems in the state for the previous calendar year. RCT submits our annual report to assist in the development of the statewide plan. The report also serves as a tool to communicate our accomplishments and goals to the community. It outlines our organizational structure, transportation services, major accomplishments, proposed action strategies, and a program for funding those strategies.
