A new East Busway Stop + TOD
Add a stop in the dense area between Herron and Negley Stations, and promote transit-oriented development
Oakland and Bloomfield are very dense areas, and more development is underway: UPMC, Pitt, and other private office and residential developments. With thousands more people living, working, and visiting this area, a new busway stop would help people get here without a car. So much new development without expanded transit will cause lots more congestion, and will require construction of huge, expensive parking garages (like the UPMC Luna garage).
The stretch between Herron and Negley is about 2 miles, a good distance for an infill stop. Placing it somewhere between Centre and Millvale would be ideal.
Centre and Baum could become nice, walkable boulevards with lots of stores and activity, rather than dangerous and barren strips with a bunch of ugly parking lots.
Zoning code should be updated to promote more development near the Busway stops, especially affordable housing.
