Sacramento Regional Transit is inviting people to help RT "prioritize improvements in the transit system." Click on the image above to take the survey.
The wife asks that on Q2 everyone put "cup holders." She feels this is the most compelling immediate improvement needed on RT buses.
This is all part of RT's master plan update effort. It all sounds good when RT says things like:
The TMP is your plan and we want to know what is important to you as we plan for the region's transit needs over the next 10, 20 and 30 years.But then you look at the calendar for open houses and public forums and you wonder whether they really want to hear from people. I live out in the Arden Arcade area. And just when does RT expect to hear from my neighbors?
Who is going to be available between 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on a Thursday? Look at the calendar: Not one weekend date. Granted, everyone appreciates why RT doesn't want to hear from people about its weekend service, but this calendar is unlikely to attract anyone except the "professional" interests -- mobility associations, groups representing the elderly. No one speaks for the "choice" riders, the people who have other options, the people who are the key if RT wants to increase its ridership.
