Transit Planning
BLE Park and Ride Lots
June Bisantz has designed a number of small, interactive elements throughout the BLE Park and Ride lots that will add whimsy to the rider's experience. 

After dark, light projections are proposed for walkways and driveways to enliven the area. Additionally, double sided solar-illuminated signs will be visible both day and night, guiding riders to and from the station platforms. The signs will be mounted on tall poles, distinct from the lot's light poles, and will be illuminated via solar panels. The messages they project, such as "travel light" will surprise, delight and enhance the rider's transit experience.

Together these elements create a "fun" wayfinding system from parking lots to station platform and back.
Interactive devices at platforms or pedestrian bridges will provide an unexpected aural message for waiting, arriving or departing passengers: laughter, words of welcome and wisdom, etc. The devices take the form of pedestrian crossing buttons, and look much like "legitimate" traffic control devices, but behave in an unexpected manner when pushed. Each button is different, designed to underscore and reinforce the aesthetic or community theme of each station or stop.
