The Central Texas Regional Transportation Advisory Group (CTRTAG) functions as the Steering Committee to develop, update and approve regionally coordinated transportation planning documents, while providing Central Texas Council of Governments (CTCOG) staff with guidance and transportation related information.
The Regionally Coordinated Transportation Plan (RCTP) is a planning document intended to promote the most efficient use of regional transportation resources. Transit agencies receiving federal dollars are required to develop this Plan and update it every 5 years in accordance with guidelines provided by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to ensure the Plan complies with state legislation relating to Statewide Coordination of Public Transportation. CTCOG partners with Hill Country Transit District (HCTD), the only regional public transit system, to update the RCTP for State Planning Region 23. In addition, CTCOG has also entered into an inter-local agreement with Texas A&M University-Central Texas (TAMU-CT) to utilize University staff and Graduate Assistants to develop, administer, compile and analyze a comprehensive needs assessment survey to evaluate public transportation inefficiencies and service gaps; conduct county hearings to gather public comment on Plan draft documents including vision and mission statements, goals and objectives, barriers and constraints and identification of opportunities; and compile all information and updates into the final RCTP Plan. The counties covered by this plan include the seven counties in the CTCOG region—Bell, Coryell, Hamilton, Lampasas, Milam, Mills, and San Saba—plus Llano and Mason Counties. The Update to the 2013 Plan is currently in progress and final draft should be approved and available for public viewing in the near future.
