Slide 1

RTSUpdateResponse to Questions1Cutting Costs by 10%Primary method for cutting costs is to reduce service levels in the unincorporated area.

Reducing Route 75 by one bus in the peak hour would provide approximately$97,000 (11%).

Service on Route 75 was preliminarily reduced in 2012/13 tentative budget before the Board reconsidered that action in adopted budget. RTS Rate FormulaCurrent rate formula is based on per hour service in the unincorporated area

In absence of a regional funding source, the current situation is as fair and equitable as possible.

9.3% of RTS service miles are in the unincorporated area.

The County funds 4.6% of RTS operating budget through annual service agreement.

Reducing Stops201 stops in the unincorporated area

17% of RTS stops are in unincorporated area

Could improve on-time service but would not provide cost savings

Stops are on demand

Completely unused stops are eliminated by RTS.Comprehensive Operational Analysis and Future PlansComprehensive Operational Analysis will begin shortly

County Staff will be a part of the Technical Review Team.

Growth of transit service outside of city limits and addition of Santa Fe student fees may be impetus for regional RTS governance discussion.
