For many bus riders in the United States, the journey to access and the wait at the bus stop are experiences that may inhibit their ability or desire to take the bus. TRB is hosting a webinar on Tuesday, September 21, from 1:00 to 2:30 PM Eastern that will highlight bus stop and pedestrian infrastructure improvement programs by transit agencies and their partners. Presenters will illustrate how agencies prioritize bus stops for improvements, discuss program leadership and funding, and describe relationships with other public and private entities. They will also explain how to leverage available opportunities for improved infrastructure. 

The webinar features research from TCRP Synthesis Report 152: Transit Agency Relationships and Initiatives to Improve Bus Stops and Pedestrian Access.
