Components of the Transit Trip

A transit trip involves more than just the bus station or the bus itself. It encompasses all of the activities and movements required to go from one location to another – from a trip's point of origin to the final destination. From walking down the street to riding the bus, the complete transit trip and all of its related components are addressed in these design guidelines.

The one common element in each component is the rider. It is imperative that all trip components put the rider first in terms of design and implementation of the transit environment. The complete transit trip includes the following components:

The Rider

The Development Lot

The Public Walk

The Transit Station

The Transit Vehicle & Infrastructure
