The RTA Hosts Regional Transit Strategic Plan Stakeholder Workshop
September 28, 2017
Earlier this week, the RTA led a workshop to gather feedback from various stakeholders as part of our work in developing the 2018-2023 Regional Transit Strategic Plan. The Plan will provide a visionary roadmap for near-term transit investment throughout the RTA six-county area, to continue to provide world class public transportation in an environment of changing demographics and new technologies. Roughly 60 stakeholders from transit agencies, transportation non-profits and other governmental organizations attended the workshop to provide input on the Plan’s priorities and strategies.
Public transportation in our region faces many challenges: an aging transit system, limited funding and a changing mobility landscape. The Strategic Plan provides an opportunity to talk about these pressing issues with stakeholders throughout the region and to develop solutions.
What did this workshop look like to the participants? In one case, an RTA staffer facilitated a discussion with staff from Pace Suburban Bus, DePaul University, the Northwest Municipal Conference, TMA of Lake County and the Shared Use Mobility Center. Their discussion centered on mass transit in the suburbs and asked three main questions:
