Data will be collected to determine factors that may affect the siting of bus stops (e.g., land use, pedestrian facilities, fleet characteristics, boarding volumes, demographic data, speed limits, trip generators, etc.) and the guidelines as described in the Bus Stop Policy and Design Guidelines will be applied to each route in the Community Connector bus system to site location of stops.
Once this process is completed for the route, the project manager will connect with the appropriate municipal planner, engineer, and/or public works director to schedule a meeting to review the site locations. After the municipality reviews and agrees with the proposed locations, a draft bus stop map will be developed for the route. See Project Methodology
The Public Outreach and Education Approach will be multi-tiered. The first tier is an Advisory Group made up of community members representing diverse populations. The second tier is outreach to municipal partner staff and the third tier is the general public. General outreach activities will be geared to educate and obtain public feedback on the proposed plans. The final tier for public outreach and education will be to the Municipal Councils.
