LOUISVILLE METROPOLITAN TRANSIT IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM

Louisville is Kentucky's largest city and the 40th largest in the U.S. Located on the Ohio River, its population was 361,472 in 1970. The study area for the Louisville Metropolitan Transit Improvement Program constitutes the original SMSA boundaries - Jefferson Co., Kentucky, and Clark and Floyd Counties, Indiana. This area also includes 26 incorporated communities. The purpose of this report is to provide a short-range (five-year) transit improvement program. This program is designed to offer the Louisville community a specific course of implementation and several alternate funding sources whereby transit can be shaped to accomodate the community's needs. This report has included an on board origin-destination survey, public hearing, goals-based alternate systems analyses, and financial/legislative research to define practical avenues to implement the recommended plan. Chapters address the background of the area, community involvements, transit goals and objectives, adequacy of service, valuation of physical assets, characteristics of transit users, alternate ownership/management framework, alternate transit systems, program for implementation, and continuing transit planning and improvement program. Figures and tables are numerous.
