Input from stakeholder working groups

Stakeholder working groups suggested strategies to increase transparency and communications with communities regarding transit funding and spending. This included articulating needed and desired information on transit investment in easily understood language and accessible formats, evaluating current outreach efforts to identify ways to improve, and developing community advisory groups to provide feedback and build further capacity for community input in all elements of transit planning.

Advocacy work ahead

RTA will expand the role of the RTA Citizen Advisory Board (RTACAB) to strengthen the rider voice in transit planning and decision making. The RTACAB will help track progress toward the goals of the strategic plan.
