Title

Adoption of the Ten-Year Regional Transit System Transit Development Plan (TDP) for FY20-FY29 (B)

 

The item involves a request for the City Commission to adopt the Regional Transit System (RTS) Transit Development Plan (TDP) for FY20-FY29.

 

Explanation

To maintain eligibility for Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) transit block grant funding, RTS must develop and maintain a Transit Development Plan (TDP). The TDP outlines the development of transit in a community over a ten-year period with major updates of the plan occurring every five (5) years. This is a major update. The City Commission approved the last major update to the RTS TDP on August 21, 2014.

 

The governing board of a transit system must adopt the major update to maintain eligibility for FDOT transit block grant funding. The City Commission acts as the governing board for public transit in Gainesville urban area. A draft copy of the ten-year RTS TDP for FY20-FY29 is attached as back-up.

 

Fiscal Note

During FY19, RTS received $1,956,645 in FDOT transit block grant funds.

 

Recommendation

The City Commission adopt the Regional Transit System Transit Development Plan for FY20-FY29.
