What is bus stop consolidation?
Bus stop consolidation makes trips faster for passengers by reducing the amount of stops on a route and balances spacing.
What is the purpose and benefits?
- Fewer stops allow faster and more consistent travel time.
- Resources and amenities (shelters, etc.) can be directed to high demand stops.
- More even and balanced spacing between stops.
Where should bus stop consolidation be applied?
- Recommended on streets with eight or more stops per mile.
- For routes with a high number of stops and a large number of riders.
- In high density, walkable corridors with many destinations.
What else should I know about bus stop consolidation?
- It can reduce maintenance costs which can be redirected for improvements.
- A trade off may be longer walking distances between stops.
