Nantucket Planning Office
The goal of our project was to provide recommendations to the Nantucket Planning Office (NPO) on ways to improve the accessibility of the sidewalks in Downtown Nantucket and the bus stops along four main bus routes, while preserving its historic character. We surveyed the sidewalks, crosswalks, and curb ramps in Downtown Nantucket as well as the bus stops and added our collected data into GIS. We recommend that the NPO and Nantucket Regional Transit Authority (NRTA) create guidelines for the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of future bus stops and sidewalks. We also recommend that a map or list is created of the best accessible routes in and around Downtown Nantucket and the four main bus routes.
