Core riders

  1. 1. Re-Envisioning Wollaston Neighborhood Planning around the Wollaston MBTA Station Who are “core transit riders”? No Access to Personal Vehicles - Youth without a license - Those choosing not to own a car - Those who cannot afford to own a car - Seniors who can no longer drive Renters - More likely to not own a car and depend on other travel modes Lower Income Households - Households looking to save money by taking transit instead of driving Diverse Populations - Both minority and immigrant populations Choice Riders - Individuals making a choice to take transit as their preferred travel mode The Dukakis Center at Northeastern University has shown through research and data analysis that households without access to a vehicle, renters, lower income households, and diverse populations are more likely to use transit and drive less.How can we create a vision for Wollaston Centerthat expands transit ridership and reduces theneed for personal vehicles?
