so APPENDIX G SUBDIVISION TRANSIT GUIDELINES IN THE REGIONAL MUNICIPALITY OF OTTAWA-CARLETON Principles a) Minimize overall walking distances by: 1) appropriate location of the collector roadway system to be used by transit; 2) provision of paved walkways; 3) placing all medium density developments on streets carrying transit, or in closer proximity to such streets than low-density development, and 4) placing all medium-density developments on streets carrying transit, or in closer proximity to such streets than low-density development b) Minimize the number of streets in which transit service is provided. c) Concentrate as many transit routes on the same street, to provide the highest possible level of service in terms of headway to all users. d) Minimize transit route lengths through the development by providing a collector road system that permits as direct as possible routing in the orientation of heaviest demands. e) Link sufficient neighborhoods by one service to ensure that attractive headways can be efficiently provided dur- ing both the peak and off-peak periods. f) Develop a transit route structure that lends itself to the minimum number of routing changes through the devel- opment stages. Conditons a) The requirement for adequate construction depth, road- way geometries, paved passenger standing areas and a minimum of a sidewalk on at least one side of the street on all streets carrying transit. b) Orientation of buildings and private accesses adjacent to the stops. c) The provision of paved all-season walkways through open areas and between streets to minimize walking dis- tances. d) The provision of transit-only roadways, temporary or permanent, including temporary turnarounds during con- struction staging. e) The distribution of land uses. f) The developer must enter into an agreement with the municipality regarding the staging of development. These agreements, which also tale into account automobile needs, may include a required sequence of construction, temporary roadways for transit access and the completion of essential roadway links prior to habitation of particular phases, plus any other measures that may be appropriate. ~- *Source: Regional Municipalit~y of Ottawa Carleton, rTransit Servicing of New Areas~uidelines for Development (Ottawa: RMOC-Transportation Planning Division, December 1981~.
