Overview data for 6 Commuter Rail, 6 LRT and 6 BRT Systems

Performance Indicators for 3 systems in each category

Data Used to Perform Preliminary Assessment of Corridors in MAG Region

TRANSIT MODE PERFORMANCE THRESHOLDS
detailed performance data
Detailed Performance Data
  • Population within 5 miles
  • Employment within 5 miles
  • Mobility-Deficient Populations (Zero Car Households)
  • Presence of Employment Nodes
  • Average Trip Length
  • Total & Congested Freeway Lanes Miles per Capita
  • Vehicle ADT for Parallel Corridors
