Student Researcher: Laura Culleton and Blake Van Jacobs
Client: City of Littleton

View Executive Summary
The purpose of this study is to understand increases in regional travel demand, assess the viability of pursuing Small Starts funding to support the region’s transportation demands, identify opportunities to leverage existing investments, and identify BRT investments along South Broadway that complement local and regional planning goals. This project consists of a complete existing conditions map, bus stop typology and amenity guide, and proposed station area land-use map that will help inform the City of Littleton about existing and potential future conditions along the Broadway BRT corridor. The client would also like to understand what “success” for a BRT line looks like. For example ridership numbers, employment numbers, air quality changes, public health outcomes, and the decrease in vehicle miles traveled by single-occupancy vehicles. These topics will be explored in the BRT Overview and Best Practices Chapter. This capstone project will allow the City of Littleton to be more informed on what kind of improvements and development would be needed for BRT to be successful along South Broadway.
