El Dorado County, CA
El Dorado County Short and Long Range Transit Plans
LSC Transportation Consultants, Inc. was retained to prepare both a long-range (25 year) and short-range (5-year) comprehensive transit plan. The long-range plan was based upon a detailed analysis of land use and travel demand forecasts both within the county and throughout the region. This was used as the basis for long-range analysis of transit demand by passenger type, trip purpose and corridor. Long-range fleet, service levels, and facility needs were then defined, along with funding requirements. A specific review was conducted of the existing maintenance facility, identifying that it would be sufficient over the long-term planning period.
San Luis Obispo, CA
Joint Short-Range Transit Plans
Using funds provided through the San Luis Obispo Council of Governments, LSC was selected (with AECOM as a subcontractor) to conduct joint Short Range Transit Plans for the San Luis Obispo Regional Transit Authority as well as the City of San Luis Obispo’s SLO Transit system. Together, these two systems serve over 1.8 million passenger boardings per year, including ridership generated by the California Polytechnic University. The resulting plans include an expansion of Express Service on the RTA system, and a wholescale route realignment of the SLO Transit program to focus services on high-demand areas.
