Estimating Accessibility to Destinations Offered By Transit
Center for Applied Demography & Survey Research
There is an increasing need to examine transportation needs and services at the community level. General estimates of transit service such as, “within a quarter mile of a bus stop” do not capture trip characteristics with respect to where people want to go. Using the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS), which captures the current transit schedules, stop to stop travel times were examined and mapped to describe service to local communities.
