Survey conducted by Nelson Nygaard group. The goal of the project was to examine the overall transit network on campus to determine how well the existing routes are matched to needs. While the project was designed to take a broader and longer term view of the system overall, there was also a specific goal of understanding needs of people with disabilities and developing programs and services to address those needs.
This final report presents Nelson\Nygaard’s analysis of both the UW accessible and fixed-route bus services. The evaluation of accessible services was developed using a combination of a review of existing services, stakeholder interviews, consideration of best practices, and focus groups with people with disabilities. The team developed a series of draft recommendations, which were shared with the UW community at a series of public meetings. Based on input and comments received at the meetings, recommendations were finalized.
