Analysis of Declining Use of Public Transit
spacer

The city of Turlock is located in the San Joaquin Valley of California and has a population of 68,711 (2010 Census).  The city operates a public transit system named Bus Line Service of Turlock (BLST), which provides four fixed routes.  BLST has seen a fluctuation of riders over the past 10 years and is currently experiencing a decline in ridership.  This project examined possible causes of declining ridership by conducting surveys directed at public transit users.  Surveys were conducted on the bus, at bus stops, and at high density use areas.  The surveys asked questions about rider experience and bus operations.  The results were analyzed, compiled into a database, and maps were produced in a Geographic Information System (GIS).  BLST is an important resource to the community, and problem areas must identified and addressed to ensure that services continue to be provided for the community.
