A Potential Arlington
Public Transit System

Saty Satyamurti, Ph.D.
Consulting Engineer

Arlington, with an estimated population of nearly 400,000, is the largest American city without any form of public transportation. Public support for measures to fund and implement bus services could be described as dismal, at best: Bond issues have been defeated and potential routes have been largely dismissed as not well thought out. Can a successful bus service for the citizens of Arlington ever be developed?

In this presentation, Dr. Satyamurti describes “Arlington City Transport” – his plan for a bus transit system for Arlington, including issues such as population forecasts, bus terminals, hubs, routes, fares, type of buses, bus stops, bus shelters, ticketing operations, safety and security.
