Now that the idea of public transit is commonplace, it is important to investigate innovative ways of bringing public transit to life in areas that could benefit from it. This paper is a part of doctoral research that focuses on university towns. Universities are primary generators of transit ridership in their towns. They help feed passengers into transit, and this research places university towns at the center as catalysts for the development of new transit systems, specifically light rail transit.
