- Make it faster: Reinforce backbone service through service restructuring and bus-supportive infrastructure.
- Make it easier: Integrate fares and bundle mobility options to produce a seamless alternative to driving.
- Make it smarter: Make targeted investments in on-demand services in areas identified as being most responsive to this type of service.
From our point of view, the pandemic has served to accelerate the underlying drivers of the study: declines in transit ridership, evolving regional needs and emerging travel options, a desire for better connectivity to jobs, and a desire to lower motor vehicle impacts on congestion and air quality. Public transportation, however, can thrive in this new post-COVID-19 era by focusing on evergreen needs: being responsive to people’s underlying need for comfortable, convenient, strong, and stable service, seamless interoperability across systems and modes, and adaptation to changing travel patterns. Our recommendations address these areas.

This plan and its findings have been extremely helpful to TANK as we chart our path forward in the world of “new mobility.” The vision created in the plan reinforces TANK’s push to redesign our backbone transit network while at the same time providing a rational framework for incorporating ride-share and other modes into the future network. The data collection, analysis, and visualization completed by Fehr & Peers was outstanding – a solid foundation for the study’s recommendations.
Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky
Two years ago, we launched a first-of-its-kind collaboration and shared data with the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority, the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky, and Fehr and Peers, a leading transportation consultant, to assist the Cincinnati region with studying the challenges facing public transportation. The report unveiled today, which is centered on rigorous analysis of transit and Uber data by Fehr and Peers, is a culmination of these efforts.
