Future Improvements

RRTA Transit Development Plan Update

In October 2014, the RRTA Board accepted the final Red Rose Transit Authority Transit Development Plan (TDP). The TDP provides an evaluation of existing RRTA fixed route services, with the outcome being practical recommendations for maximizing route efficiencies and service in Lancaster County. This Plan provides a thorough analysis of the fixed route service, the strengths and weaknesses of the operations, including those services that are the best performing and those that need attention, and recommendations designed to improve productivity and service efficiency.

RRTA Long Range Public Transportation Plan

In November 2008, RRTA unveiled a Long Range Public Transportation Plan that was compiled to help RRTA with future improvements for the next 25 years. This plan will help provide a framework for RRTA to evaluate service at the present time and in the future.

Community leaders, RRTA riders and residents of the County were surveyed for their input into the plan. Some of the recommendations within the plan suggest a need to increase frequency of service and provide commuter services outside Lancaster County to Berks and York Counties. Also, suggestions to add service to Strasburg and Paradise areas near Gap.
