Transit System Planning explores opportunities for improving existing public transit services as well as establishing transit service in locations where it currently does not exist. Transit Planning promotes improved mobility by enabling citizens to choose alternative methods of travel with reliable travel times. Transit service is essential to how many people move around the region today and will be even more important in the future.
The planning staff is responsible for developing and analyzing service and schedule plans, including near-future transit service alternatives, intermediate-range service plans, and long-range service concepts. They also analyze and assist in the preparation of transit schedules and fare policies and are responsible for adding and improving bus stop amenities, such as benches and shelters.
Determining Levels of Service
Determining the types and levels of service begins with planning and
scheduling. Evaluating ridership patterns and assessing overall demand
for High Point Transit’s service is essential to the development of a
service that will benefit as many riders as possible. Using a variety of
tools and resources, along with historical information, planning and
scheduling balances limited resources with a fundamental responsibility
to the community High Point Transit serves. Over time, additional
materials will be added to this site to broaden the picture of High
Point Transit’s planning efforts.
