What is Transit Future?
Transit Future looks at how you can improve your transit system to better meet the needs of your community now and for the generation to come. Planning that future can come in a number of forms:
- A Transit Future Plan: A Transit Future Plan envisions what a community's transit network should look like 25 years from now. It describes and prioritizes infrastructure and investment needed to get there. It analyzes the existing transit system to see how it could be improved.
- A Service Review: A service review analyzes and describes priorities, infrastructure and investment needed within a three to five year term. It also outlines the procedures for Transit Future plan implementations.
- Infrastructure and Major Projects: Infrastructure and major projects are significant investments in transit such as customer facilities, operating facilities, and transit priority measures which are required for implementing Transit Future Plans.
