How Did We Get Here?

The Regional Transit Feasibility Plan built upon decades of planning to identify the vision for transit throughout the region and define the projects that are most competitive for federal funding. An evaluation process using clearly defined criteria was used to identify the top transit corridors in the region. From this, a “catalyst project” was chosen. Development of Regional Rapid Transit can lead to future regional transit projects.

The purpose of the Plan was to identify:

  • Projects that have the greatest potential to be funded (compete for state and federal grants) and implemented
  • Projects that are the most forward thinking and make the best use of today’s technology
  • Projects that best serve our region today while supporting tomorrow’s growth

The result was a catalyst project that has public support and can be implemented. The effort also identified projects that can be implemented after the catalyst project.
