Committee Description

The Regional Transit Partnership (RTP) serves as an official advisory board, created by the City of Charlottesville, Albemarle County and JAUNT, in Partnership with the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation to provide recommendations to decision-makers on transit-related matters. There are four main goals of the Partnership, including:

  1. Establishing Strong Communication: The Partnership will provide a long-needed venue to exchange information and resolve transit-related matters.
  2. Ensuring Coordination between Transit Providers: The Partnership will allow transit providers a venue to coordinate services, initiatives and administrative duties of their systems.
  3. Set the Regions Transit Goals and Vision: The Partnership will allow local officials and transit staff to work together with other stakeholders to craft regional transit goals. The RTP will also provide, through MPO staff and updates of the Transit Development Plans (TDPs), opportunities for regional transit planning.
  4. Identify Opportunities: The Partnership will assemble decision-makers and stakeholders to identify opportunities for improved transit services and administration, including evaluation of a Regional Transit Authority (RTA).

Mission

Regional Transit Partnership is “to provide recommendations to decision-makers on transit-related matters.”

Vision

The Charlottesville Albemarle Regional Transit System is an efficient, high quality, integrated regional network of transit services that provides all residents with access to employment opportunities and community services in a way that minimizes congestion, catalyzes equitable and sustainable redevelopment and maximizes the region’s reputation as the best place to live, work, learn and play.
