The Transit Vehicle & Infrastructure

The transit vehicle and the infrastructure on which it operates represent the actual “transit service,” or the function of providing a means of movement other than personal vehicles or foot power. The vehicle is often what defines people’s perceptions of transit - “Is it clean and comfortable?”; “Is the driver courteous and professional?” The infrastructure is the space and facilities on which the transit vehicle operates. This may include dedicated lanes and turn out areas, signalization technologies, roadway dimensions, etc.
