GUIDELINES FOR COMMUNITY PLAN TRANSIT DEVELOPMENT

These guidelines, which are oriented to the creation of a useful public service, are intended to provide direction for planners of transit services in developing areas. The objectives for community transit development are listed. Studies have shown that a "convenient" transit stop should be within 1,300 ft of a person's origin or destination. Factors which should be considered in making this distance criterion possible are listed. The principles of route layout are detailed and figures are used as illustrations. The planning of timed connections, and the viability of community transit service are considered. The estimation of patronage and mapping requirements and review procedures are also discussed.
