Title

Regional Transit System (RTS) Proposed Fall 2019 Transit Service Changes (B)

 

This is a request for the City Commission to review and approve the proposed Regional Transit System (RTS) Fall 2019 Service Changes.

 

Explanation

RTS makes transit service changes three times a year. These changes coincide with the semester schedules for the University of Florida (UF) and Santa Fe College (SFC). RTS plans to maintain the same level of service as the Spring 2019 with minor schedule modifications that will affect a few routes. RTS presented these changes for feedback at an advertised public meeting on July 24, 2019 of the RTS Citizen Advisory Board (CAB). See back-up for the presentation that was reviewed with the CAB.

 

Fiscal Note

In fiscal year 2019-20, RTS will receive approximately $13.8 million from UF for transit services and $1 million from SFC for transit services.

 

Recommendation

The City Commission:  1) approve the proposed Fall 2019 service changes effective August 19, 2019; and 2) authorize the City Manager or his designee to execute any related documents, subject to approval by the City Attorney as to form and legality.
