This report in the Transit Strategies Series explores the concept of stop consolidation. Transit stops are the places where people access transit service, and greatly impact many elements of passengers’ transit experiences. Many transit systems, including Nashville MTA, have too many stops. This is usually due to an accumulation of stops over time, as transit agencies receive and grant requests for new stops on the basis that “one more stop” won’t significantly degrade service. However, over time, “one more stop” makes service slower and unattractive for those with other choices. To make MTA service more attractive to more people, it will be essential to achieve a better balance between walk distances to stops and overall travel times.
