The RTA has invested more than $22.5 million in communities to improve access to transit for bicyclists and pedestrians. Improvements like new sidewalks, signage, and shelters make transit safer and more enjoyable for riders.
The RTA has selected ten projects for its Access to the Transit program, which provides funding to municipalities to complete engineering and construction for small-scale capital improvements, such as filling sidewalk gaps and installing covered bicycle parking, that improve pedestrian and bicycle connections to transit.
