ADA Bus Stop Compliance Inventory

Kalamazoo, Michigan

DLZ provided ADA compliance review services to the City of Kalamazoo Metro Transit System approximately 1000 bus stops and 79 bus shelters. Our staff utilized iPad tablet devices to electronically input all data about each stop and allow for direct importation into the City’s GIS system or Google Earth. Our staff photo-documented the condition of each site from multiple angles and prepared sketches and took measurements to a level of detail to allow DLZ to determine the deficiencies that might exist and the required corrective measures and costs. Based on non-compliant issues with existing stops that would be difficult or costly to correct, our Transit Planner discussed the options for relocating stops and provided recommendations based on discussions with the City and consistent with Metro Transit’s bus stop standards.
