The CSPDC Board of Commissioners adopted the BRITE Transit Development Plan (TDP) at their February 6, 2023 meeting. TDPs are required by the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT), and serve as a multi-year planning document that provides direction for a transit system and its community partners. The planning process identifies transit needs, develops potential improvements to meet those needs, prioritizes the potential improvements, and identifies the resources needed to implement the projects chosen for the planning period. The planning process was guided by the consultant KFH Group and CSPDC transit program staff, with input from the BRITE Transit Advisory Committee (BTAC), the Staunton-Augusta-Waynesboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (SAWMPO), and the public.
Plans have a ten-year outlook, and are updated every six years. In the next several years, BRITE plans to implement additional days service, microtransit pilot project, additional routes and later hours of service, consider fare-free service, install additional passenger amenities through infrastructure and technology, and consider fleet electrification.
