The Corpus Christi Metropolitan Planning Organization (CCMPO) has partnered with the City of Corpus Christi (City) and the Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority (CCRTA) to plan for improved access to transit and pedestrian thoroughfares. The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) recognizes the importance of good pedestrian connections to transit and has issued guidance allowing for federal funding eligibility of pedestrian improvements made within one-half mile of a transit stop.
This Master Plan documents the existing condition of the pedestrian-transit infrastructure within a radius of one-half mile of transit stops in the Sports, Entertainment, and Arts (SEA) District, Downtown, and North Beach study areas. The Master Plan recommends infrastructure improvements and estimates the associated costs and benefits generated by the repair and installation of sidewalks, curbs, driveways, crosswalks, bike lanes, landscaping, pedestrian-level lighting, and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant ramps. The pedestrian and transit improvements proposed in the Master Plan will enhance the City’s walkability, increase access to public transit, and improve air quality by changing single-occupancy vehicle trips to transit trips. The included information will help establish FTA recognition of the federal eligibility of the Master Plan capital improvements and support the future pursuit of federal funds.
