Foursquare ITP is developing comprehensive recommendations for the first phase of a plan to improve efficiency and effectiveness of JTA’s bus network in a post-COVID environment. This project will reenvision the JTA fixed-route system to incorporate new service types that help the system recover in a post-pandemic world. Foursquare ITP developed the initial service changes to be implemented in September 2021, which included supporting bus stop updates, scheduling, and public outreach. Through an initial service evaluation of pre- and post-COVID service conditions, our team has created a backbone network that can be used to build upon with new alternatives modes of transit. Foursquare ITP’s initial service planning process has set the stage for Phase 2 of the plan to be developed that will include an extensive public outreach campaign, a detailed service analysis and a final scheduling process to create an efficient and equitable network.
