We'd like your feedback on Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) station features. You'll find some information about this topic and the opportunity to provide feedback below.
BRT Station Features
The BRT stations are designed to meet the Calgary Transit Customer commitment. Similar to LRT stations the BRT stations are designed to last. Some features are standard to most BRT stations, such as benches, trash and recycling receptacles, and system maps.
Other features are more dependent on the needs of the customer yet need to be respectful of the location and context of the neighbourhood. We learned from RouteAhead (2012) that Calgarians would be interested in features like real-time traveller information, heated shelters, and security cameras and help phones.
Not all BRT stations in Calgary will have the same features. Generally the stations will share a similar look and feel, but station design and size for each route and each location will vary. Feature will be included in stations based on the needs of the customer yet need to be respectful of the location and context of the neighbourhood.
We want to know what is most important to you, as a transit customer or member of the community. We're seeking input on:
- Look and feel (canopy design)
- Shelter from weather
- Real-time traveller information
- Heated shelters
- Bright and well lit stations
- Security features (e.g. security cameras and help phones)
- Transit ticket vending machines
- Bike storage
