To remain eligible for federal and state funding, RTS is required annually to submit a Program of Projects to the Federal Transit Administration and a budget application for capital and operating projects to the Florida DOT. Please see below for the 2014 project list.
We are expecting delays for the rest of February on Routes 16, 17 and 122 which travel SW 16th Avenue. There also may be delays on Routes 10, 43 and 76 which travel on NW 16/23rd Avenue. These delays are related to construction.

How To Ride
Whenever the National Weather Service issues a severe weather warning or watch for Alachua County and surrounding areas, RTS will provide regular city fixed route and campus shuttle service until sustained winds reach 39 mph. At that time RTS buses will finish their current run and service will be suspended for the duration of the emergency. RTS will suspend service for complementary Paratransit Service when sustained winds reach 35 mph.
