What does RTA do to provide amenities in its service area communities?

Each year, RTA uses a portion of its Federal transit funds for community transit stop enhancements, which is allowed by the Federal Transit Administration. RTA invites municipalities to apply for funding of projects to improve transit stops in their community. The partnership helps RTA because each participating municipality funds a 20% local match and commits to ongoing maintenance of improvements made in their community.  These projects improve the community infrastructure while enhancing the use of public transportation to and from surrounding areas.
