    2. 2. Effective transportation:‣ goes where people need to travel.‣ goes when they need it.‣ is easy to understand and use.
    3. 3. Parts of a multi-modal network ← Effective transit serves manyPublic transit uses and customers.Walking & street ← Basic infrastructural components. Essential for activenetwork transportation. ← Separated and on-streetBike network bikeways.Car share / ← Provides alternative to car ownership for occasional andrideshare special trips.
    4. 4. TransLink (Vancouver, BC):“Managing the Transit Network” primer(http://www.translink.ca/networkmanagement)
    5. 5. Public transportation is the “heavy mover” of amulti-modal transportation network.
    6. 6. How much transit can we afford? Hourly operating cost× Span ← What hours does service run?× Frequency ← How often does it run? ← How much is collected from- Farebox returns passenger fares? Total subsidy ← What is the cost to taxpayers?
    7. 7. Efficiency = abundanceWe can afford more transit service by:‣ reducing operations cost, and/or…‣ increasing farebox revenue.
    8. 8. Slow transit is expensive.Increase speed with:‣ Eliminate stops/widen stop spacing.‣ Direct travel pattern (circuitous streets are the enemy of abundant transit).Efficient transit geometryTwice as expensive
    9. 9. Be efficient and productive for the benefit of both TransLink and transit customersBalancing network demand (more from TransLink)(http://www.translink.ca/networkmanagement)Have strong anchors at both ends Over-supply Efficient and Productive Overcrowding Strong anchors at both ends of the line Figure 7 – Network design should coordinate service delivery with demand by providing appropriate service types and frequencies. TransLink works to provide transit service that is as efficient and productive as possible, within the budget we have. This What is Productivity? means we try to match service with demand as much as possible. High ridership generates a greater amount of fare Efficient and Productive Efficient and Productive Efficient and Productive Sometimes referred to as effectiveness, productivity is revenue, which in turn helps TransLink provide the highest essentially the return-on-investment of a transit service. level of service possible. It is a measure of how much ridership a line attracts Weak anchorsto the cost of providing the service. relative Efficient and productive services find the happy medium between over-supply and overcrowding. To reach this medium, we can change the frequency of service, when and how long Though we try to keep in mind the principle of versatility to a particular service is offered (the span of service), the spacing make the transit network useful for many kinds of people and between stops, or the level of priority given to transit (e.g. HOV trips, we have to decline service requests that would mean lanes or signal priority). running an expensive service for small numbers of people. Over-supply Overcrowding cases we may even decide to shift resources from In other Over-supply By making sure our transit services are efficient and productive, services that have low ridership to services that are experiencing we maximize the amount of service we can provide given overcrowding or pass-ups.
    10. 10. Efficiency = abundanceWe can afford more transit service by:‣ reducing operations cost, and/or…‣ increasing farebox revenue.Transit is not affordable/efficient in:‣ very low population environments
    11. 11. Frequency = vehicles per hour (minutes between vehicles)/60 minFrequency is expensive.Doubling frequency doubles operating cost.
    12. 12. Frequency also can change the nature of atransit service and make it more useful.“Frequency is freedom.”— Jarrett Walker, author of Human Transit
    13. 13. Strategy: Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)Example: EmX in Eugue, OR‣‣‣ At-grade boarding Off-board fare payment Signal priority } Speed!‣ Frequent service‣ High-quality vehicles
    14. 14. Opportunities for publictransit in Humboldt:‣ Core population centers clustered around 101 travel corridor‣ Significant trip generators in Humboldt State University, and in major employers
    15. 15. Transportation and the New GenerationUSPIRG: http://www.uspirg.org/reports/usp/transportation-and-new-generation ‣ “From 2001 to 2009, the annual number of vehicle-miles traveled by young people (16 to 34-year-olds) decreased from 10,300 miles to 7,900 miles per capita—a drop of 23 percent.” ‣ In 2009, 16 to 34-year-olds as a whole took 24 percent more bike trips than they took in 2001, despite the age group actually shrinking in size by 2 percent. ‣ In 2009, 16 to 34-year-olds walked to destinations 16 percent more frequently than did 16 to 34-year- olds living in 2001. ‣ From 2001 to 2009, the number of passenger- miles traveled by 16 to 34-year-olds on public transit increased by 40 percent.
    16. 16. Effective transportation:‣ goes where people need to travel.‣ goes when they need it.‣ is easy to understand and use.

    18. 18. Car-share/rideshare:‣ Provides a car when you need it.‣ Moves costs from capital/fixed to per- use.‣ Provides the right-sized tool for the job.‣ Enables elimination or reduction of household vehicle fleet.
