ADA Bus Stops - Upgrade Program


Program Overview

The objective of the Bus Stop Improvements Program is to bring all Transfort bus stops into Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance so that transit is accessible and comfortable to people of all abilities and ages. Transfort’s Bus Stop Design Standards and Guidelines, adopted by City Council in 2015, is the guiding document for establishing ADA bus stops and accessible connections. Dedicated funding for ADA upgrades became available starting in 2016. The goal is for all Transfort bus stops to be ADA compliant by 2026.

Beginning in 2019, bus stop upgrades will be funded through the combination of a Federal Transit Agency (FTA) grant and local CCIP funds. The grant will enable Transfort to upgrade approximately 30 bus stops per year through 2021. Additionally, bus stop amenities, including shelters and benches will be acquired with this grant.


2019 Planned Upgrades

Planned upgrades for 2019 will be posted by late winter. Once planned upgrades are identified, notifications will be sent to properties adjacent to planned upgrades. As we move through the schedule this year, it may be necessary to temporarily move stops, close sidewalk sections, and do landscaping work. Additionally, door hanger notices will also be distributed in advance of the work. If you have any questions or concerns contact Melina Dempsey at 970-224-6197 or mdempsey@fcgov.com


The Prioritization of Stops

Priority is given to stops meeting certain considerations such as, but not limited to:

  • Stops with higher ridership,
  • Demographic considerations such as youth, senior, disabled and low-income population concentrations within a quarter mile of the stop,
  • Stops adjacent to roadways with high traffic speeds.

Sometimes certain stops may move up or down on the prioritization list for various reasons such as right-of-way challenges or to coordinate with other capital projects.
