Several cities have successfully redesigned their bus networks in recent years, and one of HDR’s senior transit leaders thinks other cities should follow suit — especially as agencies prepare for a post-pandemic recovery.

Senior Transit Consultant Todd Hemingson co-authored an article on how agencies can start taking the first steps to creating bus routes that meet communities’ mobility needs in the Oct. 19, 2020, issue of Passenger Transport.

“Pursuing a more useful and efficient bus network can better address rider needs, and that can have a host of benefits for the community,” the article explains. “When transit is done well, it’s a community building block. Transit service increases quality of life, supports economic development, lowers transportation costs and increases equity, and improves public health and the environment.”
