    • Abstract:
      Over the past decade, the agency has undertaken multiple efforts to better understand the various components that contribute to safety for vulnerable road users. One major destination type that attracts a large number of pedestrians and cyclists is transit stations. In fact, all transit riders are pedestrians at some point along their journey, making it even more important to promote safe access to and from transit stations. Using a combination of electronic and on-site data collection this study examines characteristics of the transportation and built environments of 39 intersections near 21 rail transit stations in Weber, Davis, Salt Lake, and Utah Counties against non-motorized crash data. Based on a typology from the UTA First/Last Mile Strategies Study, the data analysis determined that several factors differed significantly across station types. The analyses determined that the number of non-residential driveways and large building setbacks were correlated to a significant increase in nonmotorized crashes and train-related near miss incidents. Multi-use path access, youth population percentage, and the percentage of people using transit for work trips were negatively correlated to non-motorized crashes. The results of this study show the importance of context sensitivity. All of the analyses identified key significant differences between the station types. Because of this spatial variation, there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to addressing safe access. The key differences identified in this study should be used as a blueprint for creating a customized nonmotorized improvement plan for each site type.
