Looking into the future, my specific South Florida community might need to fight for a commuter rail stop. The competition will be fierce from another community just about 3/4 to 1 mile from us This assumes that two stops within 1 mile is one too many What is a typical distance between stops?
What kind of factors will play a roll in determining who might get the future commuter rail stop? If anyone has specific links to criteria used in the past in various communities around the country, that would be helpful
Got a story about a community competing for a rail stop and what turned out to be the winning move in close decisions?
Overall population density?
Proximity of TOD's 25 du/acre to Ndu/acre?
Potential and willingness to develop a station...multi-modal center
Availability of parking...
Proximity of destination employment sites & jobs....
Proximity of employee users of the commuter system....
Any others ideas?
POLL Do you currently use commuter rail service?
