SANTA ROSA TRANSIT STUDY, FINAL REPORT

THIS REPORT SUMMARIZES THE RESULTS OF A STUDY PROJECT FORMULATED TO DEFINE AN EFFECTIVE, ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE PUBLIC TRANSIT SYSTEM TO INCREASE THE MOBILITY OF SANTA ROSA RESIDENTS. THE PRINCIPAL PURPOSE OF THE STUDY WAS TO DEVELOP THE MAJOR ELEMENTS OF A PUBLIC TRANSIT PROGRAM INCLUDING: MANAGEMENT AND OPERATING PROCEDURES; A DESCRIPTIVE PLAN OF PROPOSED SERVICE TO INCLUDE ROUTES, SCHEDULES, AND FARE STRUCTURE; AN EQUIPMENT PROCUREMENT SCHEDULE AND MAINTENANCE STANDARD; A SCHEDULE FOR IMPLEMENTATION WHICH WOULD DEFINE TIMING, PHASING, AND RESPONSIBILITIES FOR EACH PROPOSED IMPROVEMENT, AN ESTIMATE OF FINANCIAL REQUIREMENTS AND SOURCES OF FUNDING. ALTHOUGH SANTA ROSA IS RELATIVELY AFFLUENT, LARGE SEGMENTS OF THE POPULATION INCLUDING THE ELDERLY, THE POOR, THE HANDICAPPED AND THE YOUNG ARE NOT ADEQUATELY SERVED BY THE AUTOMOBILE- ORIENTED TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM. EXCESSIVE USE OF THE AUTOMOBILE HAS ALSO CREATED PROBLEMS WITH AIR POLLUTION AND TRAFFIC CONGESTION. THE REPORT IS DIVIDED INTO SIX SECTIONS: INTRODUCTION, WITH OBJECTIVES, HISTORY AND BACKGROUND; EXISTING CONDITIONS, WHICH OUTLINES THE PRESENT LAND USE, POPULATION, SERVICE, EQUIPMENT AND METHODS OF FINANCING; TRANSIT IMPROVEMENT CRITERIA, WHICH DISCUSSES THE RESULTS OF MEETINGS HELD WITH PUBLIC OFFICIALS, COMMUNITY LEADERS, AND INTERESTED CITIZENS; NEAR TERM TRANSIT IMPROVEMENTS, WHICH DISCUSSES PATRONAGE ESTIMATES, ROUTE AND SCHEDULES, FARE AND FUNDING, AND MANAGEMENT AND OPERATIONS; LONG-RANGE PLANNING ALTERNATIVES; AND RECOMMENDATIONS BASES ON THE ABOVE. AN ADDENDUM IS INCLUDED IN THE REPORT. /UMTA/
