In its ongoing effort to provide a safe transportation system for everyone, Omnitrans has invited its riders and the public to provide feedback regarding safety in and around bus stops and projects that might encourage them to use the bus more often.
Response to the survey will inform proposals for additional safety projects at and around bus stops, part of a Bus Stop Safety Improvement Plan funded by a grant from the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG).
Examples of projects that could be included in the plan are expansions of existing Omnitrans projects, such as installation of more bus stop lighting and emergency telephones, as well as new partnerships and programs. The plan, which will be completed in late 2021, is being developed by KTUA, an experienced planning, design, and outreach consulting team.
The public survey is currently open, and the public has until October 26th to complete. Survey participants will be entered into a drawing for a 31-day Omnitrans transit pass or a $20 gift card. In addition to the survey, there will also be opportunities to participate in interviews and virtual “walk audits” to provide input.
The survey and additional information about the plan are available online at omnitrans.org/safetyplan.
