Vision 2020: The Blueprint for the Future
Regional Transportation Centers: Large transit centers typically located at activity centers of regional significance, such as major shopping centers, satellite city downtowns, or important rail stations. Centers typically include off-street bus bays, sheltered boarding areas, heated waiting areas, and electronic passenger information displays.
Reverse Commute: A commuting trip that is in the direction having the lower volume of traffic during the periods of heaviest travel. The reverse commute generally involves travel between employment locations in the outlying suburban areas and residence locations closer to the urban core of the metropolitan area.
Smart Growth: Environmentally sensitive land development with the goals of minimizing dependence on auto transportation, reducing air pollution, and making infrastructure investments more efficient.
Super Stops: Passenger facilities located at the intersections of line-haul arterial bus routes. They include heated waiting areas, sheltered boarding areas, electronic passenger information systems, and pedestrian improvements at the intersection to make transfers between bus routes more convenient.
Traffic Signal Priority Systems: System of traffic controls in which buses are given an advantage over other general purpose traffic by use of early or extended green time to avoid delays at intersections. Systems are sometimes combined with traffic signal preemption systems used by emergency vehicles.
