The Fresno County Regional Long Range Transit Plan (LRTP) will guide transit and multimodal investments and services in the Fresno region through the year 2050. The plan builds on Fresno COG’s 2018 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and prior transit planning studies, and will inform the 2022 RTP.  More importantly, the LRTP will integrate appropriate and effective public transportation planning and projects into the fabric of the region’s overall circulation networks and systems.

 

The LRTP has been developed in line with state and federal transportation goals, guidance and funding programs. It creates a blueprint for a sustainable, safe, innovative, integrated, and efficient transit system to enhance the region’s economy and livability for all.

 

Specifically, the LRTP will:

  • Integrate the efforts, projects, and future operations of the major transit providers serving Fresno County through the year 2050
  • Identify a preferred long-range vision for Fresno County’s public transit system
  • Provide guidance for future investments, projects and programs to enhance transit service
  • Identify transit projects and alternatives that consider and improve sustainability, preservation, mobility, safety, innovation, economy, health and equity
  • Integrate regional bicycle and pedestrian planning with public transit plans and projects

The plan development process has been guided by a diverse Steering Committee that included each of Fresno County’s public transit operators, as well as City and County representatives and community-based organizations with an interest in public transportation.  Substantial community engagement was undertaken, including workshops and pop-up events in both urban and rural areas and a variety of surveys and stakeholder interviews   Completion and approval of Final Long Range Transit Plan by the Fresno COG Board is expected in the spring of 2019.
