DOWNTOWN LOOP BUS PROGRAM REPORT #2

THE IMPLEMENTATION OF TWO PRINCIPLE DEMONSTRATION ACTIVITIES--SANTA LOOP AND TERMINAL TOWER INFORMATION SYSTEM--UNDERTAKEN DURING PHASE I OF THE CLEVELAND TRANSPORTATION ACTION PROGRAM IS DESCRIBED. THE SANTA LOOP DEMONSTRATION PROJECT CONSISTED OF THE OPERATION (BETWEEN TANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS) OF A CLOCKWISE COUNTERCLOCKWISE LOOP BUS ROUTE WHICH CONNECTED THE ERIEVIEW COMPLEX WITH THE EUCLIDE AVENUE SHOPPING STRIP BETWEEN PUBLIC SQUARE AND PLAYHOUSE SQUARE AT A 10 CENT FARE. THE TERMINAL TOWER PROJECT WAS DIVIDED INTO FOUR PARTS: (1) DEFINITION OF A PATH WITHIN TERMINAL TOWER BETWEEN THE RAPID TRANSIT PLATFORM AND PUBLIC SQUARE/LOOP BUS SYSTEM; (2) PRESENTATION OF DETAILED DOWNTOWN AND LOOP BUS INFORMATION IN TERMINAL TOWER LOBBY; (3) IMPROVEMENT OF LOOP BUS STOP AREA IN FRONT OF TERMINAL TOWER; AND (4) OPERATIONAL CHANGES IN LOOP BUS SYSTEM. SOME OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS GENERATED BY THESE PROJECTS WERE: (1) ESTABLISHMENT OF A 10 CENT LOOP FARE FROM 10:00 A.M. TO 4:00 P.M. ON ALL LOOP ROUTES TO ATTRACT INCREASED UTILIZATION OF DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND AND THE LOOP SYSTEM; (2) IMPLEMENTATION OF A SPECIAL LOOP BUS SHOPPER SERVICE (MONDAY THROUGH STAURDAY) AS SOON AS POSSIBLE ALONG EUCLIDE AVENUE, OPERATING FROM 10:00 A.M. UNTIL ONE-HALF AFTER STORES CLOSE; AND (3) DISPLAY OF RELEVANT DISTINATION DATA, IN ADDITION TO ROUTE DESIGNATIONS ON THE FRONT, SIDE, AND REAR OF ALL LOOP BUSES AS PART OF THE COMPREHENSIVE LOOP BUS INFORMATION SYSTEM. /UMTA/
