Transit Hubs: Improving Amenities at Mass Transit Stations to Attract Users
What are the traffic volumes from each mass-transit station in your community, and why are people using mass transit?
What are the traffic volumes associated with non-transit movements, and whether the purposes for these trips are the same as those for mass transit?
Have you considered what additional amenities might attract potential transit users to a transit hub?
Have you surveyed your community for possible allies in making better use of transit stations? For example, is your local library board considering an expansion; if so, can that expansion be co-located at one of your transit stations?
Have you considered leveraging space, either at or above transit stations, to subsidize amenities so as to attract transit users?
Have you considered a pilot project to test whether amenity improvement could lead to enhanced use of transit facilities?
