Transit facilities

Possible 1 point


To encourage transit use and reduce vehicle distance traveled by providing safe, convenient, and comfortable transit waiting areas.


Work with the transit agency or agencies serving the project to inventory existing transit stops and new transit stops within the project boundary that will be warranted within two years of project completion (because of either increased ridership on existing service or planned transit).

At those locations,

  1. Confirm that transit facilities will be funded by either the transit agency or the project developer.
  2. Install transit agency-approved shelters and any other required improvements at existing stops. Reserve space for transit facilities or install transit facilities at new stops.

Shelters must be covered, be at least partially enclosed to buffer wind and rain, have seating and illumination, and have signage that display transit schedules and route information.
