The City of Lawrence Transit has recently completed an analysis to evaluate potential locations where users of both the City of Lawrence and University of Kansas transit systems can make transfers.
Having a bus transfer location in Lawrence will allow riders to make easy connections between routes. Having convenient connections between routes makes the entire system more accessible; more users will be able to get to more destinations in a shorter amount of time.
This analysis began with a community discussion about which components of a transfer location are most important to residents in Lawrence. The engagement included both public meetings and online surveys via Lawrence Listens.
The feedback given by the public was analyzed, and common themes were included as evaluation criteria for selecting the sites.
Finally, potential sites were evaluated and presented in a public meeting format and via Lawrence Listens. There were also meetings with community stakeholders during this time.
The results of the study are here:
