The Worcester Regional Transit Authority (WRTA) desires for more students to use its services. Students do not feel the need to leave campus or find public transit inconvenient. This project designed bus routes with more appealing destinations that are time efficient for students. The route design software, HASTUS, was utilized when scheduling the routes. Utility functions were used to project ridership and a cost analysis was prepared regarding potential alternatives. Two route designs with alternatives were proposed to the WRTA.
