  • Identify existing system’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT)

Review travel patterns

Assess system efficiency

Identify unmet transit needs

  • Recommend service improvements

Serve existing riders better

Attract new riders

Improve overall system productivity and reliability

Strengths/Weaknesses - Guiding Principles

Strengths/Weaknesses - Guiding Principles

Service Should be Simple:

 

For people to use transit, service should be designed so that it is easy to use and intuitive to understand

 

Service Should Operate at Regular Intervals:

 

In general, people can easily remember repeating patterns, but have difficulty remembering irregular sequences.

 

Routes Should Operate Along a Direct Path:

 

The fewer directional changes a route makes, the easier it is to understand. Circuitous

alignments are disorienting and difficult to remember.

 

Routes Should be Symmetrical:

 

To the extent possible, routes should operate along the same alignment in both directions to make it easy for riders to know how to get back to where they came from.

 

Routes Should Serve Well Defined Markets:

 

The purpose of a route should be clear, and each should include strong anchors and a mix of origins and destinations.

 

Service Should be Well Coordinated:

At major transfer locations, schedules should be coordinated to the greatest extent possible to minimize connection times for the predominant transfer flows.
