Thanks for your feedback during our public meetings in November, May and June, our small-group meetings in April and May, and our pop-up sessions at bus stops and transit centers throughout the area in December through March. Thank you also to everyone who participated online through our survey and online public meeting! Here’s what we heard:
Here are the top six priorities we heard from the regional survey:
- More reliable service (on-time arrivals and drop-offs)
- Frequent service during rush hour (5-9am and 3-7pm, Monday-Friday)
- Real-time bus arrival information
- Safety and security
- Mobile ticketing and fare payment options
- More sheltered stops in my city
Here are the top five priorities we heard from the trade-off exercises:
- Stakeholders showed clear preference for frequent bus service on major corridors over extensive geographic coverage of service.
- A strong preference was indicated for inter-city connectivity, prioritizing regionally connected service more than connections within each jurisdiction.
- Stakeholders prioritized more frequent peak-hour service on weekdays, while also indicating the importance of access to bus service on weekends and weekdays during off-peak hours.
- There was a very strong preference for implementing dedicated bus lanes, signal priority, or some other method to provide buses preferential treatment on roadways.
- There was a very strong preference for applying regional bus service standards, including hours of service, frequency of passenger pick-ups, and coverage that is consistent across city boundaries.
