EasyConnect: Low-Speed Modes Linked to Transit Planning Project

The EasyConnect Low-Speed Modes Linked to Transit Planning Project represents the integration of innovative strategies to enhance transit use during the development and construction of a suburban transit oriented development (TOD) at the Pleasant Hill Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) District station in the East San Francisco Bay Area. This planning project brings together a unique partnership including small technology businesses, transportation agencies, city and county government, and academia. The project components include the introduction of shared-use low speed mode vehicles and electronic lockers at the proposed TOD station. The evaluation of the EasyConnect field operational test, wich is the next phase of this initiative, will provide insights into whether the introduction and integration of low-speed modes and elockers at the Pleasant Hill BART station can significantly increase transit access/use and cost effectively provide a solution to the "last mile".
