Transit Needs Assessment – Go Local Project
As part of the Orange County Transit Authority’s (OCTA) Renewed Measure M “Go Local” Program, TSG conducted a Transit Needs Assessment for the four-city team led by the City of Westminster. Focused on enhancing connections to the Metrolink commuter rail system, the assessment included stakeholder outreach in conjunction with quantitative analysis of transportation patterns, local demographic analysis, and trip generators/attractors. Stakeholder outreach was designed to be flexible, effective, and efficient and included focus groups, public “town hall” meetings in multiple languages, English and Spanish mail-in surveys, stakeholder interviews, and public information kiosks. Information gathered was used both to refine and improve proposed services and to identify previously unmet needs of local transit users.
