To help prepare agencies to take advantage of the planning efforts and new programs, CASTA is using RTAP funding to make the first step of operations planning easier using our new BOP template!

The purpose of the template is to provide small rural transit agencies with limited staff and funding resources a tool to compile information in a quick and efficient manner that assists them in advocating for improved transit in their community. This template will provide agencies with a means to:

  • Explain existing agency service(s)
  • Identify an unmet community need
  • Propose a transit-oriented solution to their community’s needs
  • Identify costs and funding related to new services

You can find the BOP Template here.

We are also offering additional assistance from Michael Koch. If you have any questions or would like feedback on your BOP, feel free to set up a time to meet with Michael. For more information or to set up a working session, please contact Michael at [email protected].
