RTA Bus Route Changes

In recent weeks, the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) has been contacted by numerous passengers about service changes on this route. This notice is to communicate what the RTA is proposing, and explain the reason why.

Effective March 30, 2015, the Park & Ride in Thompson Station will move to a new location in Spring Hill. The People’s Church of Franklin has graciously agreed to host a new Park & Ride at their Spring Hill campus, located at 4910 Main Street. We are not proposing to combine this route with Route 91X Franklin Express.

The RTA was created to serve a regional transit network and designed to be supported by member communities. Historically, this support has been implemented through a contribution formula whereby communities along each route pay a portion of the operating funds each year. These changes to Route 95X are being made because Thompson Station does not contribute to the operational costs of providing this service.

Moving the Park & Ride to Spring Hill will result in changes to the driving route and the daily trip schedule. In general, the new route will have slightly later departure times in the mornings, and earlier arrivals in Spring Hill on the afternoon return trips. Furthermore, The People’s Church will become the first stop in the mornings, and the last stop on the return trips. Above is the proposed new route and schedule for the 95X Spring Hill Express.
