Pedestrian Network Analysis Project

Improving pedestrian access to transit stops

Whether walking or using a mobility device, all riders need to be able to get to their stops safely and comfortably. To make sure everyone has a positive experience, it's essential to provide safe, convenient and attractive sidewalks, pedestrian crossings and waiting areas.

Through the Pedestrian Network Analysis Project, TriMet and its regional partners are developing an objective, data-driven system for prioritizing places around the region where pedestrian infrastructure investments will provide safer and more comfortable access to transit.

Project staff analyzed 7,000 transit stops and made specific recommendations that cities, counties and the state can incorporate into community plans, project designs and funding decisions. These improvements may include adding or widening sidewalks, adding landscaping or planting street trees, calming traffic and/or adding street lighting.
