This report reviews the current state of available public transportation services in central Kentucky, with a focus on the Lexington-Fayette County commutershed. Within the region, this report identifies the major public transportation providers, describes the transit services available through them, and examines the potential opportunities of intercounty commuter public transportation services. Using intercounty commuting data obtained from the 2006-2008 Census Transportation Planning Products (CTPP), this report estimates the potential need and opportunity for additional transit services. Lastly, this report argues for the viability of vanpools as an efficient and cost-effective strategy for addressing the shortage of intercounty commuter transit services.
