Abstract: The purpose of this document is to provide SEPTA, municipalities in the SEPTA service area, local developers, and other local partners a consistent set of guidelines for designing surface transit stops. While the focus of this document is on bus stops, many of the elements addressed here also apply to trackless trolley and mixed-traffic trolley stop locations. The design guidelines detailed in this document are intended to guide local comprehensive plans, land development ordinances, site or subdivision plans, and transportation/mobility plans. These guidelines are based on a review of standards and best practices applied nationally, discussions with SEPTA staff and planning partners, and survey feedback from municipalities in the SEPTA service area.

Key Words: SEPTA, transit, bus, bus stop, transit stop, stop design, design guidelines
