public transportation, Transit
Increasing public transit use can reduce demand for single occupancy vehicles, lower emissions, improve transportation cost equity, and reduce congestion. Due to the real and perceived costs of using transit, demand for fixed route transit often increases when coupled with workplace parking restrictions (e.g. limits on permits, higher costs, remote parking requiring longer walks or other transfers). In this project, a targeted pilot intervention was conducted to test connecting potential transit users with incentives to increase bus ridership on the Route 116 corridor between Hinesburg and Burlington.
