Transit Enhancements

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen developing a multi-modal plan it is important to consider transit users because at some point the transit user becomes a pedestrian.  Many times, people who use transit do not own an automobile, so walking and bicycling are their main forms of transportation.  It is important to not only provide safe and convenient ways to access transit but also provide infrastructure and amenities at the transit stop.

At the very minimum all bus stops should provide a concrete pad so wheelchair users can safely access the bus stop.  At locations where bicycle and pedestrian routes intersect a bus route and in areas of high ridership, the bus stop should include additional amenities such as benches, shelters, bike parking, maps and schedules, bus pull-off areas and lighting.

The following map notes areas where bus stop should be relocated to align with proposed road crossing improvements.
