The City of Lathrop and San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) are studying the needs and opportunities for public transportation across the community as the City grows. The study will evaluate several concepts for future public transit service within Lathrop.

The study brings together a number of elements to provide direction on future transit service within Lathrop:

  • Engage with community members to identify desired destinations and trip purposes that new transit service should serve.
  • Analyze big data and demographics to identify areas of Lathrop where expanded public transit could be most successful in meeting the community’s goals and align with current travel patterns.
  • Develop several conceptual transit alternatives and gather additional community feedback on these alternatives.
  • Provide guidance on funding opportunities and required resources necessary for implementation.

We Want to Hear From You!

The project team is interested in understanding how people who live, work, and/or go to school in Lathrop could be better served by increased public transit service. There are two survey options available:

  • The Lathrop Transit Survey is a brief, form-style survey that asks about your current travel patterns, what you would want to see from expanded public transit service, and some basic information about you. It should take 5-10 minutes to complete.
  • The Interactive Survey Map allows you to place locations on a map that you believe would benefit from increased public transit service.

Both surveys can be accessed from the buttons below.
