LEED ND: Built Project | v1 - LEED 1.0 pilot

Transit facilities

NPDc9 | Possible 1 point


Encourage transit use and reduce driving by creating safe and comfortable transit facilities.


Provide covered and at least partially enclosed shelters, adequate to buffer wind and rain, with at least one bench at each transit stop within the project boundaries. Shelters shall be illuminated to five average maintained footcandles (light levels may be reduced after hours). Existing external lighting can contribute to this level, but any new lighting shall meet light pollution requirements in GCT Credit 20, and designed to not directly illuminate any windows of residential properties.


Provide kiosks, bulletin boards, and/or signs devoted to providing local transit information as part of the project, including basic schedule and route information at each transit stop that borders or falls within the project.
