Abstract

Capturing the Ride is an exploration of flexible transportation options for low-density communities in Salem and Keizer. The current transit system does not serve Keizer, South Salem, and West Salem well; each of these communities has areas with limited or no access to current bus routes. The project intends to provide a service that will better meet the communities’ transit needs than the current system. Over a five-month planning process, Paradigm Planning conducted extensive research and reached out to the public in Keizer, South Salem, and West Salem (herein referred to as the study areas) to determine what kind of flexible transit might work and whether the communities would be receptive to using this service. This report is a comprehensive overview of Paradigm Planning’s process and its set of recommendations for making flexible transit a successful reality in Keizer, South Salem, and West Salem. This set of recommendations will be reviewed by the Salem-Keizer Transit Board of Directors and considered for further action.

This project was conducted under the supervision of Sy Adler, Marisa A. Zapata and Gil Kelley.
