The City's Transportation Master Plan (2011) lays out a network of Enhanced Travel Corridors (ETC), one of which is
the West Elizabeth corridor. ETCs are roadways that emphasize walking, biking and transit. The first ETC was the Mason Corridor, which now features MAX Bus Rapid Transit and the Mason Trail. The Harmony Road ETC
Plan was completed in 2013, but has not been implemented yet.
The West Elizabeth corridor already has high transit, bicycling and walking demand, and an ETC is a comprehensive tool that can help address some of the challenges West Elizabeth faces, such as: • Overcrowded buses • A higher number of bike crashes than expected • Sidewalks in some locations that do not meet standards and are not comfortable for walking

The overall intent of the North Front Range Transit Vision project was to identify the feasibility for an integrated regional transit governance and decision-making model for the North Front Range communities of Berthoud, Fort Collins, Larimer County, and Loveland, as well as a related operational structure. The project included a public outreach process focused on stakeholders, transit users, and the general public to develop a recommendation on a path forward for potential transit service integration in Larimer County with improved service and cost-effectiveness.
This document describes the design criteria associated with transit facilities that Transfort routes serve. It includes ADA accessibility standards, bus stop type recommendations and priorities for bus stop improvements.
Transfort peers were selected for their demographic and geographic similarities to Fort Collins (rather than their transit system characteristics). Investment per capita represents how much each peer community invests in transit. Revenue hours per capita represents how much fixed-route service each peer agency provides to its community.
