2010 Fare & Service Level Proposal

The national financial crisis has resulted in steep declines in sales tax revenues and state funding for RTA. For RTA to balance its 2010 budget, a $17.4 million budget gap must be addressed. While maintaining fares at their current level (base of $2.25) beyond the expiration of the fuel surcharge period ending on April 1, 2010 can address a portion of that amount ($8.4 million), service levels must be addressed as well.To meet this requirement, RTA wants to consider comments from the public. All received comments, both given at public hearings or in writing will be analyzed, and appropriate modifications made, if possible. It is anticipated that service changes will be implemented in April. Public hearings will be held in early January to allow time for all public comments to be considered in developing the final plan. Comments and suggestions can also be emailed to RTA at public-comment@gcrta.org.In developing the service changes listed below, route spacing was considered as well as ridership. RTA would like to have as many residents as possible within about 1/2 mile of a transit stop. Due to the funding however, meeting this goal may not always possible.Discontinue all service on the following routes or route segments...
