Transit Strategic Plan

About The Strategic Planfunnel removebg preview

Blacksburg Transit (BT) is in the process of developing a Transit Strategic Plan (TSP) to help guide service improvements over the next ten years in Blacksburg and Christiansburg. TSPs are required for transit agencies operating in urbanized areas (areas with over 50,000 residents) to ensure that transit services are planned to better meet their communities’ mobility needs. This gives BT the opportunity to evaluate and update our routes and services to respond to changes in demand, as well as to adjust services to accommodate the new Multi-Modal Transit Facility.

Blacksburg Transit’s TSP will be developed according to the Transit Strategic Plan Guidelines established by the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT). Information about the TSP guidelines can be found here: https://www.drpt.virginia.gov/guidelines-and-requirements/transit-strategic-plans/

The TSP will guide BT’s planning efforts, the prioritization of capital programs and projects, and the development of the operating and capital budgets for the next 10 years. The TSP is a living document that is designed to be more flexible and responsive to changes in the community.

The TSP process will ensure BT is better able to serve the growing needs of the Blacksburg, Virginia Tech, and Christiansburg communities.
