Approximately every five years, the City of Janesville reviews and updates its Transit Development Plan (TDP), which sets the overall direction for the Transit System for the coming half-decade. The process to develop the plan includes collection of data, stakeholder interviews, a survey of bus riders and the general population, analysis of bus operations, and public input throughout the process. Also included in this year’s review is examining feasibility of transitioning to a bus stop only transit system and updating the design of the Janesville Transit System (JTS) bus sign. Any changes to service would take place in July 2018 at the earliest.
