The purpose of these guidelines is to develop suggested design criteria that should be considered when designing and placing transit facilities. Please contact Omnitrans to discuss the specifics of your project.
This information is not to be used as a set of standard details on which to base a final design, but rather as recommended criteria and general guidance for the placement and safe design of transit facilities. It cannot be overemphasized that these guidelines must be used in conjunction with sound evaluation of the facts and planning/engineering judgment. These guidelines are intended to be used for actions on new or revised stop locations, and do not intend to apply to existing stop locations.
