Planning

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.
