Transportation Development Plan

A Transit Development Plan (TDP) is a planning tool used to analyze the need for transit in a defined area, evaluate the services that are provided, and develop strategies to match the service to the identified transit needs. 

The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) has an emphasis on investing in transit systems that are meeting the existing demand for public transportation, and a desire to meet the growing demand for improved public transportation services through careful coordination of transit and land use planning.  As such, DRPT requires that public transit operators receiving state funding prepare, adopt, and submit a TDP at least every six years.  DRPT provides consultant assistance to local operators to develop the plans.
