53: Transit Bus Stop and Transfer Facility Improvements Program

Project Description from submission form

Decentralized Transfer Facilities 

The Transit department service options identified during the Athens Transit Feasibility Study require the addition of decentralized transfer facilities that would allow routes to integrate with the existing system without returning to the Multi-Modal Center (MMTC) during service. These transit related improvements will be evaluated for their specific needs and have one or a combination of the following provided: installation of signage (static and/or electronic predictive arrival), concrete pad, seating, covered shelter over the paved pad, landscaping, lighting, route information, bicycle rack, trash can, bus pull-off, restroom facilities, bus/customer parking and other related bus stop improvements, as deemed appropriate by location.

Bus Stop Facilities Improvement Program. 

Proposed improvements for bus and bus facilities, and other transit related improvements will be evaluated for their specific needs. Bus stop locations have one or a combination of the following provided: installation of signage (static and/or electronic predictive arrival), a concrete pad, seating, covered shelter over the paved pad, landscaping, lighting, route information, bicycle rack, trash can, bus pull-off, and other related bus stop improvements.

Decentralized Transfer Facilities, and Bus Stops / Bus Stop Facilities funding may be used as local match funding for state and/or federal grants to expand the Bus Stop and Bus Stop Facilities program, if grant funding becomes available.
