This document presents the Short Range Transit Plan (SRTP) for Targhee Regional Public
Transportation Authority (TRPTA). This plan is the culmination of a planning process that
involved determining the transit needs in the TRPTA service area, analyzing existing
transportation services and their ability to meet those needs, and recommending both
organizational and service initiatives aimed at improving service delivery. This SRTP provides
a short-term vision of public transportation for the region, and includes strategies that will
help guide transportation decisions over the next five years.
The planning process was guided by the TRPTA Board of Directors, as well as a project
advisory committee that included key community stakeholders. The SRTP planning process
was conducted simultaneously with the development of a Public Transit-Human Service Plan
(PTHSP), and the advisory committee met periodically to review interim documents, to
provide input on transportation needs and potential improvements, and to guide the overall
direction of both planning efforts. A list of the agencies that participated on the project
advisory committee is provided in Appendix A. It is anticipated the SRTP and the PTHSP
will be used in conjunction, and will serve as blueprints and practical documents for future
discussions and efforts in the region to improve mobility.
