Background Discussion

In a February 2014 Work Session, Public Works/Transit Division staff provided the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) with information on proposed fixed route transit service enhancements for the upcoming three (3) year period. The review included associated implementation costs, recommended fare adjustments, and potential grant funding sources for the proposed services in Fiscal Years 2015, 2016, and 2017. All service enhancements are derived from the 10-Year Transit Development Plan (TDP) as adopted by the BCC on September 24, 2013, including the phasing plan for implementation.

The fixed route fare and service enhancements proposed for FY 2015 are complete. Therefore, the service enhancements proposed for FY 2016 and FY 2017 will be reviewed with the BCC for potential impacts in the upcoming budget cycle. During this work session, Public Works/Transit Division staff will inform the Manatee County BCC on the status of TDP implementation including the following:

  • Adopted TDP Phasing & Programmed Service Enhancements
  • Performance Metrics & Monitoring
  • FDOT Grant Resources & Local Match Funding Sources
  • Proposed Regional Transit Service (RTS) Opportunity
