Foursquare ITP was part of a multi-disciplinary team that conducted a Transit Corridor Study on State Road 436 in Orlando, Florida. Foursquare ITP evaluated existing transit services and provided a detailed overview of transit activity along the length of the corridor. This analysis of existing conditions included conducting a demographic analysis in comparison with metropolitan areas statistics, generating a propensity analysis throughout the study area, analyzing general route metrics such as passenger per hour, farebox recovery ratio, subsidy per passenger, as well as an in-depth analysis of passengers per hour by route and transit speed by segment, and concluded with a summary of bus stop facilities and spacing along the corridor.

Foursquare ITP led the ridership modeling using the Transit Boardings Estimation and Simulation Tool (TBEST) For the final alternatives, which included limited stop bus, BRT-Lite and BRT alternatives. Foursquare ITP also developed detailed operational plans for each alternative that included the span and frequency of each route, and estimated operating costs and the necessary capital investment.

Solutions and Outcomes
  • Parcel level market assessment.
  • Detailed operational analysis of existing service and plans for future BRT service.
  • TBEST ridership estimation.
