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.
