Newport, KY

AARP Community Challenge Grant Year: 2019

Project Category: Public or private transit access

Description: West Newport's bus stops lacked basic amenities for the many residents who relied on them daily. To address this, ReNewport purchased and installed benches at 11 stops and added a trash can to a stop where littering was common. To ensure community input informed bus stop improvements, ReNewport and a neighborhood association also founded a bus stop committee. Members met several times, reviewed bus stop data provided by the Transport Authority of Northern Kentucky and visited bus stops to assess their condition. Organizers with ReNewport say the committee's work will inform future bus stop upgrades in the area.
