IMPROVING TRANSIT AND TRAIL LINKS IN FLORIDA

The National Center for Transit Research (NCTR)  has evaluated how inter-modal connections between public transportation and public trails in Florida can improve livability. See: http://bit.ly/1SypSj8  The report, Methodology for Linking Greenways and Trails with Public Transportation in Florida explores existing ways of evaluating inter-modal connectivity, developes a methodology for evaluating trails and transit systems, and offers a trail/transit crossing inventory template to audit conditions at these junctures. It also recommends improvements at these junctures so people using nonmotorized transportation can use both public transit and a public trail to complete a multi-modal trip.
