Analysis of Movable Bus Stop Boarding and Alighting Areas

The goal of this project is to explore the feasibility of creating movable bus stop boarding and alighting areas for Florida transit agencies. The specific objectives to be accomplished to achieve this goal include: Researching the state-of-the-practice and issues involved in meeting bus stop Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements; Developing design alternative(s) for movable/reusable/relocatable boarding and alighting pads, considering their relation to other bus stop amenities such as benches and shelters; Performing life-cycle cost analysis of each design alternative; and Recommending one or more alternatives that are acceptable to both transit agencies and riders with disabilities.
