Coordination Goal: Ensure that safety is of the utmost priority for our employees, passengers, and general citizens of the Concho Valley and surrounding areas.
- Create sheltered bus stops with curb cuts, lighting, and trash cans in the UTD fixed-route system. Ensure equal amenities at rural pickup points. These amenities will increase ridership in the urban and rural systems. They improve safety for passengers in both systems, as well as for those who transfer between systems. Amenities provide improved access for seniors, individuals with disabilities, and other transit dependent groups. They also provide areas for posting information for branding and increasing awareness of CVTD services and opportunities for local businesses, public agencies, and health and human services organizations to support the transit system through advertising. This is currently in the implementation phase as six shelters have been purchased and concrete pads poured. Additionally, 13 benches are in the procurement phase.
- The in-house maintenance project will augment CVTD’s initiative to establish a State of Good Repair management framework to improve the system’s asset procurement and salvaging process to maximize passenger safety and minimize operations costs. The engineering and design bid is out now.
Coordination Goal: Create a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere for Concho Valley citizens and transit
- Create partnerships with TxDOT and City Engineer to utilize transit drivers to help identify routes with poor pavement quality that severely impacts rides.
