Below is a list of corridor and other planning studies that support forthcoming planning work on future Pulse lines:
Pace encourages municipalities and developers to incorporate the agency’s Transit Supportive Guidelines. This document provides a range of design and policy solutions that support the operation of all Pace services, including Pulse.
Included with Pace’s Transit Supportive Guidelines is the DRAFT program (Design Review Assistance for Transit). Pace transit engineers can provide complementary technical reviews of preliminary transit infrastructure designs associated with new developments, roadway improvements, and other changes in land use and infrastructure. Pace encourages developers, municipalities, roadway officials, businesses, and others to contact Pace’s transportation engineers at Transportation.Engineer@pacebus.com for assistance with planning and designing such improvements.
Implementing Pulse Service
Pace continually evaluates corridors and tracks planned developments to ensure that investments enhance the transit system.
As part of the planning process, Pace assesses Pulse funding needs and applies for state, federal, and/or local grants for implementing Pulse project phases. Typically, these funds are used to complete preliminary planning work, fulfill federally-mandated environmental review requirements, engineering, construction, vehicles, and operations. Given the level of investment associated with Pulse, Pace continues to look to local partners to support this program with transit-friendly infrastructure and development in order to maximize regional transportation dollars.
