MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this report is to demonstrate the potential impacts a from-scratch redesign of the Houston, Texas bus system will have communities within the city. It discusses the theory behind the new system, including the role of frequent networks, all-day service, gridded coverage, and perceptions of transfers. In addition, it reflects on the necessary political backing, technical expertise, and large scale public outreach efforts inherent in a successful transit system redesign for a city of over 2 million. Finally this paper analyses the impact of the new system by comparing how various Houston communities access has been altered though socio-economic, commute pattern, and employment lenses.
