On March 15, 2010, the CRTPA Board accepted the Regional Transit Study. The study, developed by a consultant using federal transit funds, was initiated to develop a long-term transit vision for the capital region (Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon and Wakulla counties). As such, the study was the first of its kinds to holistically address regional transit needs. The study’s goals were to:
- prepare an assessment of future transit needs for the four-county area;
- identify and assess realistic funding strategies;
- identify an organizational structure that will promote the development of a seamless, regional transit system; and,
- identify an implementation strategy and milestones.
Two (2) rounds of community meetings were held during the course of the RTS. Each round included a meeting in the four counties within the study area (Leon, Gadsden, Jefferson, and Wakulla) and one in the City of Tallahassee. The first round of meetings was held April 14 and 16, 2009 in conjunction with the CRTPA-Regional Mobility Plan and informed the public and other stakeholders of study goals and elicited input on transit needs, opportunities and priorities in the region and its communities. The second set of community meetings was held on November 16 and 17, 2009 in each of the study area counties and focused on the draft study findings and recommendations.
