This report highlights some of the accomplishments and major events which have taken place during the fiscal year.
GATRA uses performance measures to evaluate and improve service. GATRA’s fixed route service and Dial-a-Ride service area have been divided into groups for comparison purposes. Fixed route services are broken down by type of service while the Dial-a-Ride service area has been broken into regional groups. Both fixed route and Dial-a-Ride services are measured using Passengers Per Revenue Mile (PPRM), Passengers Per Revenue Hour (PPRH), Revenue Miles Between Preventable Accidents, and Miles Between Road Calls.
This 5-year Comprehensive Regional Transit Plan (CRTP) update builds on the work of the Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority (GATRA) 2015 Regional Transit Plan (RTP). This update was recommended by the Task Force on Regional Transit Authority Performance and Funding in its final report issued in April 2019.1 The report included 24 recommendations in five categories:
- Investment and Performance
- Service Decisions
- Quality of Service
- Environmental Sustainability
The CRTPU recommendation (No. 7) was included in the service decisions grouping. Specifically, recommendation 7 advised that “RTAs will continue to succeed by understanding their markets and by aiming to have their service networks meet the current and future mobility needs of their region as well as support connectivity to other regions where possible. This effort will be guided by (1) the completion or updating of Comprehensive Regional Transit Plans (CRTPs) every five years…”
