TMD completed a Strategic Investment Plan (SIP) for Mountain Line, which provided recommendations for investment in network improvements, enhanced operations, transit priority, and ZEB implementation. The plan included a revamp of Mountain Line’s capital planning processes and a 10-year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) that integrates existing projects with the new recommendations.

As part of this project, TMD also reviewed Mountain Line’s zero-emission bus transition plans to ensure they aligned with agency capabilities and industry best practices and tailored the SIP recommendations to account for future electric bus deployment. When implemented, TMD’s operating and transit priority improvement recommendations will serve to reduce delay and improve the customer experience while also easing the ZEB transition through reduced running time and enhanced service delivery.
