DVRPC Board Approves Our Innovative Travel Demand Management Project!

TMA News | May 7th, 2024

We are pleased to announce that the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission Board has approved our $149,993 “US Route 1, Business Route 1 Access to Transit Evaluation and Corrections” innovative transportation project through the Travel Options Program (TOP).

Our project will evaluate SEPTA transit stops along the entire Bucks County length of the US Route 1 and Business Route 1 corridors, identify safety and/or accessibility issues at these stops, and promote implementation of corrective measures that will improve community accessibility.

“The overall goal of this project is to make transit a safe and viable option for more people who live and work in our community,” explained TMA Bucks executive director Stephen Noll. “As SEPTA begins to implement sweeping redesigns of its bus network (The Bus Revolution), this project will aid in the success of the newly designed routes and, in particular, the microtransit zones proposed within the project area by identifying stops and areas where improvements to stop locations will increase the appeal of the overall system and encourage more system use.”

The Travel Options Program (TOP) funds projects that will provide better access to and awareness of more travel options in the DVRPC region, such as walking, biking, and taking transit. The goal is to reduce the number of single occupancy vehicles on the region’s roadways–a practice otherwise known as Transportation Demand Management (TDM).
