Practicality. Frequency. Ease of use. Your departments of transportation, local agencies, and community residents want a reliable transportation option that brings them to more places, more often. With coordination and experience, bus transit systems can meet these needs and more.
But before you get where you’re going, you need to know where you’ve been. Evaluating existing ridership, service, and financial characteristics identifies where your bus transit system is and where it needs to be. Reducing delays, long waits at transfer stops, missed departures, and crowding maintains ridership and keeps a positive perception among passengers. Determining how your bus transit system fits within your community’s long-term transportation plan increases buy-in from policymakers and residents alike.
From feasibility studies to facility upgrades, the design of your bus transit system should reflect a deep understanding of transit service plans.
