The Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority in Allentown Pennsylvania asked Foursquare ITP to evaluate its plans for a proposed Enhanced Bus Service (EBS) in the Lehigh Valley region to connect key activity centers with limited stop, higher frequency bus lines. Using a route performance analysis, our transit propensity tool, and high-frequency multimodal analysis, Foursquare ITP evaluated quantitative and qualitative data to develop final alignments for the EBS and feeder routes that will address the community’s needs. We also developed the scheduling, blocking, and runcutting for service implementation, including interlining and other schedule efficiency tools.

Solutions and Outcomes
  • Implementation ready redesigned EBS and Local route alignments and levels of service.
