In 2011 the fixed transit routes were realigned to better serve the core of the community. These new routes relied on transfer stations to reduce the travel time in the urban core. This report analysis the four new transfer locations and provides recommendations on location, design, and cost. Four bus stop locations in the Pocatello, ID area were chosen to be evaluated for improvements to passenger comfort and safety. The objective of this study is to establish a location for modification or replacement of existing bus stops. There were multiple options evaluated for each bus stop location, and each option was analyzed to find the best possible site.
Once the preferred location was established, a design was formulated to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) requirements, along with Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) recommendations. Safety, passenger information, movement of buses, accessible routes of pedestrian travel, and effects on surrounding property were other aspects considered in the analysis of each transfer station. Each location will have a shelter installed to better provide for passenger comfort and protection from environmental factors.
