This study reports the distribution, cleanliness and accessibility of bus shelters on the Central New York Regional Transport Authority (Centro) bus lines in Onondaga County. Most of the shelters recorded are located in the City of Syracuse. Based on a literature review, criteria were identified to assess the accessibility of Centro shelters for people with disabilities. Researchers also determined the cleanliness of the shelters and presence of light sources. This study is the first of other research projects that will examine the availability of public transportation to Onondaga County residents. This report represents the combined efforts of the community geographer in the Geography Department and the Community Benchmarks Program (CBP) in the Public Affairs program, both based at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University.
