DRWC is working on a comprehensive transit study and action plan to increase access and improve the experience of getting to and from the Delaware River waterfront and the many new parks, trails, destinations, and developments that are drawing more and more people every day.
The plan will focus on improving transit service along the waterfront, enhancing the public realm surrounding transit stops, and transforming Delaware Avenue / Columbus Boulevard from a heavily-traveled auto-centric corridor to a walkable, urban street that offers a pleasant experience for those arriving on foot, by bicycle, and by public transportation.
Foursquare ITP and Interface Studio are leading the planning process. On October 9 and 10, 2018, the planning team hosted two public meetings – one at Independence Visitor Center and one at Old Swedes’ Church. The purpose of the Open House-style meetings was to share an overview of existing conditions related to transit to and along the waterfront, and to invite feedback on some of the ideas that might inform preliminary recommendations emerging from the study.
If you weren’t able to attend the meetings, or have additional thoughts to add to the mix, please review the series of boards presented at the Open House using the link below. Use the survey below to weigh in on the questions posed in the boards. The survey to collect feedback on the boards will close on November 7, but an open comment card will remain for the duration of the study. We look forward to hearing from you!
