TRANSPORTATION COMPATIBLE LAND USES AND BUS STOP LOCATION

Public transportation works most effectively where high activity levels, unlimited parking, and quality pedestrian and transit access could be found. Such activities or land uses can be considered as public transportation compatible. Effective public transportation system operations depend on the way the community is designed and how its land uses relate to its road network. Relationships connecting the spacing between bus stops and some crucial factors are presented. Curb bus stops are discussed as a common type of bus stop in urban areas. Also necessary is to give consideration to issues such as available space, the location of the demand points, and the behavior of both drivers and passengers.
