The report reviews the existing bus system of Norwalk, Connecticut, and how it evolved, and offers alternative courses of action that will provide adequate levels of transit service to Norwalk citizens. Structured so that they can be phased in sequence, four alternatives are presented separately in such a way that combinations of features can be made to form new alternatives which may be more responsive to local inputs. The four alternatives proposed are: Preservation of existing bus service; traditional transit improvements; a local system that would eliminate intercity service by local bus transit to enable concentration of resources in Norwalk and in other neighboring cities with local bus systems; and a new concept approach for comprehensive transit improvement, involving two types of service structured to complement one another.
