Abstract

The Central Massachusetts Regional Planning Commission (CMRPC), in conjunction with the Worcester Regional Transit Authority (WRTA), sponsored this project to create a more accurate and detailed inventory of Worcester bus stops. The main goal of the project was to create a master database that could be shared by our sponsors and the Worcester Department of Public Works (DPW). We also created an assessment tool that gave explicit details of each stop regarding overall safety and handicap accessibility and that can be used in later data collection. Based on data collected, recommendations were made to improve safety and accessibility on evaluated stops.
