TMD is working with the Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County to develop a five-year plan for public transportation services in Reno, Sparks, and other communities in Washoe County Nevada. The study is using ridership, demographics, and location-based data to determine how to best serve this growing area.
Recommendations include changes to many of the RIDE routes and expansion of their FlexRIDE microtransit service. The plan will also include strategies to:
- Retain current transit riders and attract new ones
- Improve customer service
- Improve and combine technology
- Make RTC’s operations financially sustainable
