The Regional Core Circulator Study (RCCS), initiated in July 2002 began as an effort to address transportation-related questions raised during development of the 2025 Regional Transportation Plan and in the Downtown Toledo Master Plan. Issues pertaining to street operations, a central transfer center for transit, parking expansion, and TARTA bus operations in the core of our region in downtown Toledo needed additional study. These proposals spawned additional questions as to what is the best downtown transportation system. (See Study Background). Further questions regarding transit options between the University of Toledo and downtown were also addressed. The final study results are documented in an Executive Summary. Background on the analysis is presented below. A full report is available - see final section below.
As alternatives were developed and refined, it became apparent that an economic analysis of the benefits of the proposed streetcar would facilitate the decision-making process. Stage 2 contained that analysis and is documented in the summary and report.
Stage 3 was added in 2004 to investigated transit options between the University of Toledo and downtown. This analysis was presented to the public in December 2004. A brochure from that meeting summarizes the results of that analysis.
