WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
- A densely populated university campus is capable of initiating an alternative mode of transportation
- Impacts of future light-rail transit — a fast and viable mode of alternative transportation — in a university setting with an annual ridership of about 10 million
- Trransit-oriented design can foster an inclusive environment for transit commuters, pedestrians, and bikers
MORE SESSION DETAILS
The idea of developing light-rail transit in Athens, Georgia, has been researched for the past 21 years. The University of Georgia campus is roughly one square mile and has a population of 45,000 to 50,000 people during the day. The current UGA bus transit has an annual ridership of about 10 million. Therefore, a densely-populated area that utilizes transit already exists and justifies rail transit. This poster sheds light on the rail-corridor master plan, including a few design aspects like trails, bike paths, and transit-oriented development for Athens's sustainable future.
