Exploring Walking Tolerance of Transitway Users

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  10/16/2017


A survey of Twin Cities park-and-ride transit users revealed how far they were willing to walk to reach a bus or train, as well as users' concerns about safety and other features of the walking environment. The transit users surveyed in the study reported that they would walk three blocks (about 0.3 mile) to a bus or train when the minimum walking distance was two blocks. If intersection safety, pedestrian infrastructure and building appearance were all adequate, they may be willing to walk 1.8 blocks (about 0.18 mile) farther. Regional transit operators will use this data and other survey results to construct efficient and easy-to-use commuter lots.
