This session will highlight how transit forms the backbone of a larger active transportation system and helps connect travelers to areas that are beyond their reach by bike or walking alone. Hear about this framework from various scales – short trips, regional commutes, statewide travel and beyond. Presentations will cover recent trends and analysis in CTUs (cycle-transit users), bikes-on-board, bike parking, locating bike share with transit stations and planning efforts underway, as well as real stories from current travelers who combine active transportation and transit.

Transcript

  • 1. Transit + Active Transportation Complementary Components in a Livable Community Oregon Active Transportation Summit April 21, 2014 Jeff Owen Active Transportation Planner Planning & Policy owenj@trimet.org 503-962-5854
  • 2. Transit + Active Transportation 1. Transit is the backbone of a regional system 2. Active transportation excels at short trips and connections to transit 3. Transit + active transportation = Perfect match
  • 3. trimet.org/biketrimet.org/walk Active Transportation Program
  • 4. Overview: • We need safer and more comfortable access to transit • This effort helps us to identify areas where access improvements have the greatest need and the biggest opportunities • Provides focus amidst great need throughout the region trimet.org/walk Pedestrian Network Analysis
  • 5. Over 6,500 transit stops total
  • 6. Pedestrian Network Analysis Overview of Process: • Big service area with lots of transit stops 1. Base Analysis (land use, ridership, destinations) 2. Overlay Analysis (deficiencies and opportunities) 3. Composite Scores (look for clusters, then focus areas)
  • 7. Pedestrian Network Analysis
  • 8. Pedestrian Network Analysis Partners are KEY to this process Ongoing Efforts: • Initial effort complete, but we are still working hard to find funding for projects around the region
  • 9. Hwy 8/SW Oaks Street at Winco Hillsboro, stop id 4119, line 57 Before After
  • 10. 185th at TV Hwy Aloha – stop id 7012, line 52 Before After
  • 11. Recent Partner Highlight • RRFB partnership between TriMet and City of Portland: • 60th/I-84/Max Station – install July 2012 • SE Stark/126th – install Fall 2012 • SE Division/I-205 – install February 2013 • SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway/62nd – install January 2013
  • 12. Pending Funding Opportunities Source Lead Project types Amount STIP Enhance TriMet/Cities (includes Portland, Gresham, Tigard, Washington County, ODOT) 3 Corridors: Sidewalks, safe crossings, rapid flash beacons, medians, signalized intersections, bus stop improvements $8.0 million MTIP REOF TriMet & City of Portland 1 Corridor: Sidewalks, safe crossings, rapid flash beacons, medians, signalized intersections, bus stop improvements, bike access $9.1 million MTIP RFFA Cities and Counties 10 projects with direct benefits for transit riders = sidewalks, safe crossings, streetscape, bus stop improvements, bike access $32.1 million TOTAL PENDING: $48.5 million
  • 13. trimet.org/walk Jeff Owen Active Transportation Planner Planning & Policy owenj@trimet.org 503-962-5854
  • 14. trimet.org/biketrimet.org/walk Active Transportation Program
  • 15. Bike on Bus, 2 per rack, all buses (About 600 active service buses) Bike racks at most rail stations and some bus stops (lots) Reserved, keyed bike lockers (450) On-demand, electronic lockers (28) Group parking facilities (3)
  • 16. All buses in the system, 2 per rack Bike onboard front of Bus
  • 17. Allowed system wide, like luggage Folding Bikes onboard inside Photos provided by Will Vanlue
  • 18. Allowed system wide - if there is room Bike onboard MAX and WES
  • 19. Bike onboard MAX and WES
  • 20. All rail stations, some bus stops Basic Racks
  • 21. $25 per 6 months, reserved Keyed Bike Lockers
  • 22. On-demand, 5 cents per hour Electronic Bike Lockers
  • 23. Secure and enclosed Group Parking Facilities
  • 24. Research Highlight Mineta Institute: • Cycle-Transit Users (CTU’s); Philadelphia and San Francisco • Philadelphia: traveled 2.8 miles by bike • San Francisco: traveled 5.4 miles by bike • Findings: modes complementary, make bike-transit use a high and funded priority
  • 25. 1. Preserve, maintain, make small improvements 2. Seek new funding: a) East Portland Active Transportation to Transit: Gateway TC b) Orenco redevelopment and state grant for bike room c) ConnectOregon V: Goose Hollow and Beaverton Creek 3. PMLR Orange Line: a) Group parking at Tacoma and Park Ave, elockers at Milwaukie, and covered parking – no new keyed lockers Bikes: What are we doing now?
  • 26. Portland-Milwaukie Project Bike/Ped Fact Sheet Online and at table http://trimet.org/pm/library - Bike and Ped Access
  • 27. PMLR Snapshot
  • 28. Bikes: What are we doing now? • Above: Test for MAX; Right: Test for Bus • End Result: Capacity is limited on-board • Next Step: Parking, BikeShare, etc.
  • 29. 1. Municipal (ex: Portland Bike Share, pdxbikeshare.com) • City/Region wide • Large kiosks Future: Bike Share as First/Last Mile 2. Corporate (ex: Intel OBI, Nike, Kaiser) • Corporate campus to transit • In development 3. Emerging (ex: Kiel Johnson’s plan, new technology) • Flexible, scalable • Can start small
  • 30. Future: Corporate Bike Share • Intel OBI pilot: • Developing an open source-inspired model for bike sharing • Pilot project with 30 bikes • Plan to re-launch with 200+ bikes after acceptance • Great potential for link to MAX (LRT) stations! instagram.com/openbikeinitiative openbikeinitiative.org
  • 31. Future: Corporate Bike Share • Kaiser e-bike pilot: • Metro RTO grant award to acquire, deploy, and study usage patterns of 30 folding e-bikes to 180 employees at three work sites • Test user acceptance of e-bikes as a first/last mile commuting solution • Employee would have the bike for up to 3 months Bike model selected for project: Currie iZip E3 Compact http://www.currietech.com
  • 32. “Participants in the study may use the e-bikes however they wish, with the expectation they will be used as a first/last mile commuting solution for longer trips.” “For example, instead of driving to work, participants could take public transportation such as the MAX Light Rail, using the e-bikes to get from home or work to the transit stop.”
  • 33. Mobility Hubs: Hillsboro GoPoint Screen capture from Hillsboro GoPoint video Team in New York, presenting idea to Bloomberg Philanthropies. Courtesy of WTA wta-tma.org. (L-R) Brad Choi, Peter Brandom, Aron Carleson, Heather McCarey GoPoint Summary: Help create a balanced suburban transportation system by branding, promoting, and managing a network of mobility hubs that use technology to integrate public and private transportation options.
  • 34. Transit + Active Transportation 1. Transit is the backbone of a regional system 2. Active transportation excels at short trips and connections to transit 3. Transit + active transportation = Perfect match
