Market Served

Given the current financial climate, service should be placed when and where the maximum benefit can be provided to the general public In addition, productive service lowers the net cost per hour, resulting in more service per dollar.

In general, service should be focused on corridors and within areas where high density population, employment, and activity centers exist These corridors and areas usually generate high levels of transit riders to justify frequent service (15 minute or better headway) that provides convenient access to key origins and destinations Corridors and areas with dense ridership should be served throughout the day and week. As ridership potential decreases, the emphasis on service should be during peak periods, base day, weekends, and late night, in priority order.

While service should focus on when and where significant demand exists, there is still a need to provide basic lifeline service in areas and times of day with low demand Therefore, a basic lifeline network should be provided on critical corridors during the owl period and to connect low density areas to the transit network.
