The Bus Stop Design and Management Guidelines will be used as the framework for developing a consistent, system-wide designated bus stop plan to transition from a flag-stop system to designated stop system for the fixed-route bus service in the greater Bangor urbanized area.

The design guidelines are intended to guide local comprehensive plans, land development ordinances, site or subdivision plans, and transportation plans. This document provides guidelines in which to build desirable facilities and amenities wherever possible to provide them:

These guidelines will lead to:

  • a more consistent, accessible, and better-connected network of bus stops;
  • clear and uniform guidance on the design and placement of bus stops and stop-related
    infrastructure and amenities;
  • and a process to clearly identify responsibility and coordination for maintaining and/or managing bus stops.
