On August 7, 2006, the Charlottesville City Council approved a resolution of intent to establish a new
Regional Transit Authority
with Albemarle County. The resolution was previously approved by the
Metropolitan Planning Organization
and Albemarle County’s Board of Supervisors. The University of Virginia has not yet indicated whether it will be a participant.
What I am hoping we will do together is devise a plan to more forward with a comprehensive transit system that is a much larger scale than what we have in place today. And if that means a significant increase in County participation financially, I believe our current [County Board of Supervisors] is prepared to move forward in that way
