Improving Integration of Transit Operations and Bicycle Infrastructure at the Stop Level

Miguel Andres Figliozzi
The interaction between transit vehicles and bicycles can create conflict when both share the same space. In particular, the location of transit stops poses specific challenges along bicycle facilities. Little research exists to offer insight on how the placement of transit stops affect bicycle safety and comfort levels or how bicycle flow affects transit operations (stop dwell times, delays, etc.). This project builds on existing UTC-funded work using high-resolution bus GPS data to analyze ... Read More

The new Social-Transportation Analytic Toolbox (STAT) for Transit Networks, developed by NITC researchers in a multi-university collaboration, is a dynamic platform that combines Twitter, general transit feed specification (GTFS), and census transportation planning products (CTPP)—in this case, job density data—to help agencies evaluate overall system performance and identify connectivity gaps. It can also act as a decision support tool for recommending service improvements. The STAT is an o... Read More
