Background

Improvements to pedestrian and bicycle connections to transit stops can increase the willingness of travelers to choose transit and the distance their willing to travel. These linkages can help make that critical last-mile connection between transit station and trip destination.

Strategies

Improvements to pedestrian connections

Provision of a comprehensive network of safe, comfortable and secure paths for pedestrians

  • The sidewalk network
  • Sufficient safe street crossings
  • Protection from the elements, i.e. shade trees

For discussion of pedestrian environment at station, see Improvements to out-of-vehicle experience for transit users sections

Improvements to Bicycle connections

Bicycles extend the range of transit riders from their point of origin to the transit station and then from the transit station to their destination.
