TRANSIT ACCESS STUDY: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report summarizes the major findings and recommendations of the D.C. Transit Access Study, conducted by the District of Columbia's Office of Planning and Development. The study has been reviewed by and received valuable guidance from the staffs of the Council of Governments, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), the D.C. Department of Transportation, as well as numerous public interest groups. The study provides an indepth overview of the access problems that may arise from the opening of Metrorail stations in the city. This overview forms the base for the recommendations, contained herein, to improve the access to many of the current and proposed Metro stations. In most cases, it is recommended that minor improvements and modifications be made to existing streets and bus routes servicing the stations to make access easier and safer. But in a few cases, major modifications are necessary to improve access. (Author)
