Good Ideas Transit Project
Transcript of Good Ideas Transit Project
1. We are experiencing better accessibility and mobility
2. How Columbus is addressing our problem.
3. What do other cities do
4. Our recommendations
The city is responsible for removing snow from the street.
COTA contracts with an outside agency to clean the bus shelters, not bus stops.
What is the City and COTA doing about this problem?
1. 311 - Use it!
2. Policy Enforcement
3. Adopt a Stop
What About Other Cities?
Other cities across the United States, in a variety of climates, run an "Adopt-A-Stop" program.
Businesses, community organizations and individuals can adopt a shelter to solve a variety of problems: trash, graffiti, snow, etc.
The Federal Transit Administration compiled a report in 2013 highlighting some cities that are running Adopt-A-Stop programs around the country.
We Are Experiencing Improved Accessibility and Mobility
Denver employs a full-time Adopt-A-Stop program coordinator.
About 1,000 RTD stops have either individuals (50%) or businesses or non-profits (Boy Scout, etc.) that are covered under the Adopt-A-Stop program.
COTA - "committed to excellence."
Tri-Delta Transit: Antioch, California
This Adopt-A-Shelter program stopped in 2003 because of high cost and lack of follow-through from volunteers.
They replaced the Adopt-A-Stop program with a driver "quarterly incentive" program. Drivers report damage and are entered into a quarterly drawing for a $75 cash prize.

Columbus aims to define Complete Streets
According to city code the owners of residences or businesses are in charge of clearing their sidewalks.
This city code is enforced by a number of city agencies, including public service, safety, development and health commissioner.
The current fine is $100
