EVALUATION OF TRANSIT SYSTEM COORDINATION AND FUTURE SERVICES IN THE CHARLOTTESVILLE URBANIZED AREA

The report results from a ten-month study that focused on how bus service could be improved to accommodate the future transit needs of the city of Charlottesville. Among the alternatives considered were strategies such as changing routes and schedules on the present system, coordinating the city service with the University of Virginia bus system, and expanding bus service into Albemarle County. The 123-page report contains an overview of all public transportation in Charlottesville, provides an in-depth analysis of present Charlottesville Transit Service ridership based on an on-board survey conducted in April, 1976, examines the operating characteristics of both the city and university systems, tests alternative routing concepts to determine the effectiveness of each in providing public transportation, and analyzes future transit demands in the city-county-university regional area.
