  • Abstract:
    The primary focus of this study was to develop non-traditional transit

    alternatives to better serve the residents of Prince George's County. The study

    identified the transportation needs of the area, evaluated the applicabilty of

    traditional and non-traditional transit options and developed an implementation

    plan for the selected transportation services. The project selected likely

    destination areas for non-traditional transit services in the County using

    census demographic data; information on location of major employment, retail,

    and educational centers; and an inventory of available transit service in the

    County. The potential number of users of non-traditional transit was estimated

    on the basis of the distance from employee residences to employment clusters,

    accessibility via existing transit service, and assessed need and

    non-traditional transit potential of residential communities.

    A range of non-traditional transit options was developed to serve the needs of

    several key areas in the County. Detailed operating and implementation plans

    were developed for three of the options. One of the recommended options is the

    shuttle operated with small buses, developed to serve the needs of the Prince

    George's Plaza/Hyattsville areas. This options would improve the livability of

    these communities. A second option provides a connection between a major

    hospital (currently unserved by transit) with nearby residential communities and

    a majro shopping center in the County. This service would be operated as fixed

    route during the peak periods and route deviated service during off-peak hours.

    The third recommended service is another community-oriented bus that provides

    frequent connections between a newly developed residential community, metro

    stations and retail establishments. The study recommends teh implementation of

    the three options to evaluate teh applicability of the proposed non-traditional

    transit in serving the needs of suburban communities.
