Transit Master Plans

Delaware County Planning can help municipalities develop master plans to better plan for transit-oriented development around transit stations.

Transit Master Plans establish short and long term strategies that aim to guide and strengthen development around public transit facilities, whether those facilities are bus, fixed rail, or a transit center. These plans will provide a strategic vision for a given station area by addressing its current transit service and anticipating its future transit needs.

Develop a Transit Master Plan

Best suited for fixed rail facilities and transit centers, Transit Master Plans would build upon Transit Needs Assessments and further investigate elements necessary for successful transit-oriented development (TOD). Transit Master Plans will:

  • examine current land use and zoning regulations;

  • identify parcels with redevelopment potential;

  • address deficiencies in bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular station access;

  • identify parking capacity issues (if applicable); and

  • recommend enhanced service levels (if applicable).

These factors, in addition to the Transit Needs Assessment, would establish a future vision with implementable short and long-term projects that aim to better integrate transit facilities into their surrounding neighborhoods, enhance customer experiences for captive and future passengers, improve current transit service levels, and help spur economic development.
