Capital District Transportation Authority Park-and-Ride Express Bus Study

Albany, New York

BFJ worked with the Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA) to evaluate and improve park-and-ride facilities and express bus service in the Capital area.  BFJ documented the physical conditions of 40 park-and-ride lots and surveyed park-and-ride lot users (including kiss-and-ride and walk-and-ride users) to determine user behavior and attitudes. These surveys were used to develop market demand estimates for park-and-ride and express-bus usage.

BFJ then proposed key strategies to improve services including identifying the following: potential locations for additional park-and-ride facilities, opportunities for new express routes, opportunities for bus service enhancements including shoulder running along congested highways, conceptual express service designs, wayfinding and signage improvements, and a framework for marketing and branding.
