In previous work, TRC researchers surveyed transportation-system efficiency measures, trends in Vermont, and policy & education strategies that might encourage increased transportation-system efficiencies. In this report, researchers focus on investigating the relationships between (1) Rideshare lots and fixed-route transit routes for the state, (2) An idealized fixed-route transit network and the existing fixed-route transit routes in the state. The intent is to identify relationships that will help planners strategically recommend new transit routes, site future rideshare lots, and explain under-utilization of existing services.
