Approach sidewalk, raised island and bicycle bypass lane all help improve safety to and from this bus stop in Sheffield, England

 

Since the recent survey data shows that the majority of public transit trips include a walking component, improving the state of pedestrian facilities around stations and bus stops is a key means of supporting existing and potential users of transit services. PEDS, with the support of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, Kaiser-Permanente and FHWA, has studied this issue and developed a toolkit to help local governments deliver safer routes to transit. Learn more about these issues at a forum scheduled tonight (April 3rd) at the Decatur Recreation Center from 6:30 to 8:00 PM. For more information about the PEDS safe routes to transit toolkit may be found here.
