In 2013 and 2014, a team led by Jarrett Walker + Associates conducted a Comprehensive System Analysis for Salem-Keizer Transit in Oregon.
The focus of this analysis was a redesign of the Salem-Keizer Cherriots local network, which the agency implemented in 2015.
Before the network design process began, JWA facilitated discussions and decisions by the Board, staff and stakeholders about:
- How to balance coverage and productivity goals within the network and the budget
- How to balance walking and waiting
- Whether and how to serve developments that do not orient towards transit
In spring of 2014, JWA finalized with Salem-Keizer Transit both Short-Term and Long-Term operations plans and networks, for a range of future revenue scenarios.
