Fairfax Countywide Transit Network Study

Hub & Spoke Transit Network

Create a Hub & Spoke Transit Network. Hubs would be defined by high-capacity transit stops (Metrorail, Light Rail, Streetcar, Bus Rapid Transit, or several high-frequency local routes) with zoning and land use rules revised to promote adjacent mixed-use higher density development.

Spokes would come in three flavors:

* Connections between hubs, using the modes indicated above;

* Peak period First Mile/Last Mile services connecting neighborhoods, office parks, industrial parks and medical centers with the nearest hub. These services could be fixed route bus, circulators, taxi stand and zone strategies, route deviation, zone dial-a-ride as done in Dallas and Denver...

* Off-Peak curb-to-curb circulators connecting non-driving residents including seniors and people with disabilities to nearby shopping, medical facilities, library, senior center, recreation/community centers, and a main-line transit stop.
