Transit audits

Some audits focus on assessing the environment around bus stops and sometimes rail stops, to determine how safe and comfortable the environment is for pedestrians using transit.

For transit-related walkability audits, checklists, and materials, consider the following:

  • Bus Stop Checklist — Tool developed by Easter Seals Project Action to evaluate pedestrian access features and connections, assess passenger comfort amenities, evaluate safety and security features, and document information features. The Easter Seals Project Action web site also has a comprehensive list of Other Bus Stop Checklists and Inventories.
  • Arlington County Bus Stop Assessment — Tool included in the 2003 Florida Department of Transportation study, Safer Stops for Vulnerable Customers, used to assess bus stop locations, surroundings landing areas, connections, amenities, seating, safety, and passenger information.
