Public Outreach


In order to generate public participation during all stages of the project, the RTC has placed a very strong emphasis on public outreach. The RTC established the Community Working Group (CWG) to foster two-way communication with community organizations and neighborhoods to develop community-based decisions on the Virginia Street Bus RAPID Transit Project. The CWG meets regularly to discuss the project. Additionally, the RTC hosts Community Information Meetings to provide information and receive feedback from the general public. Beyond the CWG and Community Information Meetings which are open to the public, the RTC meets with various committees, applicable agency representatives, and the City Council, and regularly conducts one-on-one meetings with citizens groups, business owners, and interested organizations.
