Transit Development Plan

WSDOT and FTA require RiverCities Transit to submit a six-year Transit Development Plan (TDP) annually. The TDP is a six-year projection of operating and capital expenditures as well as goals, accomplishments, and organizational structure for our transit agency. Included with the plan is the previous years’ annual report.

The TDP is a six-year transit plan required by the Washington State Legislature and Federal Transit Administration. RiverCities staff prepares the TDP and submits it to the State DOT for approval. Before submission, a comment period and public hearing are held to obtain input from the public on the TDP. After approval, DOT forwards the report to the Federal Transit Administration. The TDP includes the size of RCT’s fleet, costs, revenue, service revenue hours, revenue miles, expenses, operating characteristics, and possible future capital expenditures.

Public Participation Plan

The Public Participation Plan (PPP) is a living document that outlines RiverCities Transit’s engagement of the public in transportation decisions.  It outlines ways to participate in transit planning activities, projects and meetings carried out by the agency.  The purpose of the plan is to ensure continued use of relevant and effective means of providing information to and receiving input from the public and interested parties. It will be updated at least once every four years to reflect new tools, platforms, and methods used to engage and inform the public.  RiverCities Transit (RCT) is also committed to ensuring that no person is excluded from participation in or denied the benefits of its services on the basis of race, color, or national origin, as provided by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended.
