Strategies to access transit and provide a seamless, complete trip for all riders
Bus stops are the entry points of a transit system. The first step of a customer’s complete trip is either a walk or wheel to the bus stop. However accessing the pathways to these stops and navigating the system can be challenging for the elderly and persons with disabilities.
In addition, new publications such as an info brief from The National Center for Mobility Management explore the concept of the complete trip and how complete streets policies can help ensure safe and convenient access to stops and corridors for all riders.
Join this session to learn how transit agencies are partnering with different stakeholders to improve bus stop placement and management, how technology can help users navigate accessible pathways to bus stops, and how new integrated mobility options are making pedestrians and cyclists safer while accessing stops.
