Fixed route networks require thoughtful modification to evolve along with the communities that they serve. The City of Amarillo identified the need for a fixed route system review in late 2016 and contracted with TGC to design a new fixed route system that would service quality and attract more riders. As part of this study, TGC completed the following:

• Completed a comprehensive technical analysis of the fixed-route system including boarding and alighting study, on-time performance study, and route analysis.

• Designed a new fixed route network to improve directness of travel and connectivity to major destinations. Prepared draft schedules.

• Prepared draft schedules and budgets. Estimated the cost of operations for multiple service levels, based on frequency of service.

• Completed an assessment of capital investments for the new fixed route network, including bus stop spacing, corridor condition, and passenger amenities.

• Led a robust community engagement campaign. TGC conducted face-to-face interviews with riders, conducted open houses and small stakeholder focus groups, and surveyed riders and the general public using on-line and direct mail.

• Completed a Management System Review to identify and make recommendations addressing management, procedural, and FTA ADA compliance strengths and weaknesses.
