Intent

To encourage transit use and reduce vehicle distance traveled by providing safe, convenient, and comfortable transit waiting areas.

Requirements

Work with the transit agency or agencies serving the project to inventory existing transit stops and new transit stops within the project boundary that will be warranted within two years of project completion (because of either increased ridership on existing service or planned transit).

At those locations,

  1. Confirm that transit facilities will be funded by either the transit agency or the project developer.
  2. Install transit agency-approved shelters and any other required improvements at existing stops. Reserve space for transit facilities or install transit facilities at new stops.

Shelters must be covered, be at least partially enclosed to buffer wind and rain, have seating and illumination, and have signage that display transit schedules and route information.

What does it cost?

Cost estimates for this credit

On each BD+C v4 credit, LEEDuser offers the wisdom of a team of architects, engineers, cost estimators, and LEED experts with hundreds of LEED projects between then. They analyzed the sustainable design strategies associated with each LEED credit, but also to assign actual costs to those strategies.

Our tab contains overall cost guidance, notes on what “soft costs” to expect, and a strategy-by-strategy breakdown of what to consider and what it might cost, in percentage premiums, actual costs, or both.

This information is also available in a full PDF download in The Cost of LEED v4 report.
