In April of 2018, Broward County Transit (BCT) launched an update of its 10-year Transit Development Plan (TDP) called BCT Connected, which will identify and prioritize improvements and services for transit in Broward County over the next 10 years. As part of this effort, the current transit system is evaluated to determine existing and future needs. We want your comments and ideas on how the current transit system is working and what you think is needed in the next 10 years.
Final Draft 2019-28 Transit Development Plan (TDP)
The 2019-28 TDP for BCT serves as the strategic guide for public transportation in Broward County over the next 10 years. Development of this TDP included a number of activities including: documentation and analysis of the demographic conditions in BCT’s service area; an evaluation of existing transit services in Broward County; market research and extensive public involvement efforts; an analysis of immediate and longer term transit service and capital project needs; and a funding analysis and plan that initiates strategic approaches to maintaining and expanding transit services in Broward County within the next ten years and forward.
The full 2019-28 TDP document, its appendices and an Executive Summary are located at the following link:
The Vision Plan component of the 2019-28 TDP focuses on improving the transit system to better meet the needs of the community and reflects the vision for future services as confirmed through this TDP process. The Vision Plan reflects the projects and budgets that compose the overall Penny for Transportation Surtax Plan recently approved by Broward County voters. For the purpose of meeting the TDP Rule, the 2019-28 TDP provides a 10-yr. (2019-28) and 30-yr. (2019-48) overview of the overall Surtax Plan, with particular emphasis on BCT's projects and needs.
If you have any comments or questions on the final draft 2019-28 TDP, please submit them to: BCTConnected@broward.org.
What is BCT Connected?
BCT Connected is Broward County’s Transit Development Plan, or TDP. The TDP is how BCT ensures it is providing the services necessary to support the community’s travel needs and maintains eligibility for funding from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). The TDP includes the following sections:
- Baseline conditions - information about population, employment, and transit system trends
- Public input - opportunities for the community to participate in the process
- Goals and objectives - statements to guide the actions to produce the desired outcomes
- Transit demand - assessment of the need for existing and new services
- Future directions - setting of the direction for transit for the 10-year period
The TDP is updated annually and a major update is conducted every five years. BCT Connected is a major update that will cover Fiscal Years 2019-2028.
