TRANSIT DEVELOPMENT AND BUSINESS PLAN
Current Transportation Solutions Team conducted on-board surveys and stakeholder meetings; developed and analyzed performance measures; analyzed demographics and needs; developed a cost allocation model; and developed recommendations for future service changes. So what’s in store for the future of Streamline?
The Human Resource Development Council (HRDC) hired Current Transportation Solutions to conduct Bozeman’s first transit plan since Streamline began fixed route service in 2006. HRDC asked for a strong emphasis on business planning, including development of a variety of operations and service alternatives based on different potential financial scenarios.
For this project the Current Transportation Solutions Team conducted on-board surveys and stakeholder meetings; developed and analyzed performance measures; analyzed demographics and needs; reviewed and analyzed Streamline’s financial management; developed a cost allocation model; and developed recommendations for future service changes. The team also focused on organizational structure and vehicle maintenance costs.
