Making Multi-Modal Connections, District of Columbia, 2011
5 minutes Date Enacted: Apr 8, 2011
Multi-modal connections refer to the links between different modes of travel, such as Metrorail, bus, and private cars. These connections can be improved by expanding Metrorail stations to allow for more effective bus and streetcar transfers, particularly as streetcars, RapidBus, and Bus Rapid Transit services become more common. Similarly, better pedestrian amenities, increased bicycle parking and more visible parking for car-share vehicles at Metrorail stations can enhance connections.
