The Richland County Regional Planning Commission provides administrative services for the Richland County Transit Board (RCTB), which oversees the public transportation services of the Richland County Area. The RCTB was formed in 1978, with the members being appointed by the Richland County Commissioners, according to the Ohio Revised Code. Regional Planning staff provides all grant management and financial functions, service oversight and evaluation, asset procurement and management, and all required planning and civil rights activities for the Transit Board. This includes working with the Federal Transit Administration, the Ohio Department of Transportation, and local entities. The current public transit operations are provided throughout nearly all of the City of Mansfield, along with portions of Ontario, Shelby, and Madison Township. This includes 14 fixed bus routes, complementary para-transit service for persons that have a disability that precludes them from using the fixed route service, and door-to-door grocery shopping service for senior citizens and persons with disabilities.
The RCTB also provides financial support to the Shelby Taxi service, which is operated by the City of Shelby. The transit service is currently managed and operated by a management company, under contract to the board.
