Reece Martin at RMTransit walks through how transit can be better designed to support frequent transit use. Basic things like larger doors and better designed interiors can reduce dwell times and passenger flows on trains. But Martin goes deeper into things like infrastructure, signaling, and track design. Those lessons have direct application for the Puget Sound region which is in need of solutions to improve frequency of the existing light rail system.
