Great bus stops and train stations are natural focal points for communities – they are places where people gather, wait, socialize, run errands, and enjoy a refreshment or a meal on their way to and from work, school or other places. Transit stations can be successful sites for markets, small businesses and public services. PPS helps agencies, developers and communities across the country capitalize on access to transit by working with them to better manage stations, integrate them into their communities, and demonstrate their potential for economic development. Leveraging transit as a place and destination instead of just basic transportation facility has helped communities and agencies increase transit ridership, reduce automobile congestion, improve livability, provide community services, and revitalize adjacent neighborhoods.
