Transit planning includes working with human services agencies, transit operators, local governments, and the public to better coordinate existing transit program and to identify funding to expand and or improve service delivery and coverage. All with the purpose of better serving riders who use public and private passenger transportation services. Input from these groups is used in updating the Bi-State Region Transit Development Plan, a four-year program of transit needs, goals and projects for a six-county area, including Henry, Mercer, Rock Island Counties, Illinois, and Muscatine and Scott Counties, Iowa.
An annual update of the TDP is finalized by May of each year. It is reviewed by the metropolitan Transportation Technical and Policy Committees in cooperation with other regional groups, Region 9 Transportation Technical and Policy Committees and Region 2 Advisory Committee. Information is also provided to a group of passenger transportation stakeholders, Regional Transit Interest and Advisory Group, for comments and input.
