RTA publishes community guide to pedestrian accessibility
The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) recently released "Making Way: A Guide for Communities to Promote Pedestrian Mobility and Increase Access to Existing Transit." The guide was developed to encourage municipalities in the region to implement small-scale capital access improvements such as the installation of sidewalks and crosswalks near existing transit facilities. Such improvements promote pedestrian mobility and provide added access to transit. The guide outlines specific steps that communities can take to improve their local built environment while providing viable connections to existing bus and train facilities that will help increase transit ridership.
