Transit Development Plan

Attention Customers! 

Due to customer feedback, South Central Transit Authority (SCTA) will reconfigure the proposed Route and Schedules changes and present a new proposal at the June SCTA Board meeting. 

SCTA has reviewed the customer comments received and will be proposing changes to the current proposal.  When the new proposal is presented at the June Board Meeting, the public will have 30-Days to make any comments again.

Even with the plan to present changes to the proposed Route and Schedule recommendations, SCTA has decided to continue with the scheduled public hearing on Monday, June 17th from 12 PM – 2 PM and then 4 PM – 8 PM at the RRTA Operations Center.  A virtual option is available for the public hearings.  See link info. below to join virtually.

The new schedule links with the new proposal details will be posted on the RRTA website on Thursday, June 20, after the Board meeting.
