Transit Access and Service
A key transportation goal identified in the TSP update process is improving access to transit and enhancing transit service. Cherriots provides transit service within Polk and Marion Counties, including multiple stops in Independence. Tech Memo #6 focuses on opportunities to improve transit service in the area through the enhancement of walkability and cyclability to transit stops and the creation of “mobility hubs” at key multimodal locations. The preferred alternatives also seek to increase the accessibility and amount of transit service that runs through the community to encourage additional trips on transit. The figure below shows a variety of transit alternatives that are being considered for the future transportation system.
