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.

Based on the current annual budget allocation, Transfort can upgrade approximately thirty-three stops per year. Additionally, bus stop upgrades as well as new stops are sometimes implemented as part of other City capital projects.

2018 Planned Upgrades

The 2018 bus stop upgrade project list is for informational purposes only, and is subject to change as needs arise that were not identified in advance. 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.
