Frequency is freedom. It’s what attracts more people to ride transit and leads existing riders to take transit more often. Yet only 10% of Americans are within walking distance to transit service that runs every 15 minutes or better. Investing in more frequent bus service is one of the most effective ways to reduce transportation emissions and increase ridership.
This session will explore the funding mechanisms for boosting frequency, showcase impact of recent investments in bus networks across the U.S., and offer strategies for partnering and coordinating with your city/ transit agency.
