Making Transit Accessible

Transit ridership need to triple in the next 20 years in order to reduce the number of vehicles on roads and to meet long-term climate goals. Obstacles to increased transit use include: 

  • Unconnected sidewalks
  • Infrequent signalized street crossings
  • Poor street lighting
  • Substandard bicycle and pedestrian facilities 
  • Lack of transit near major employers
