TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Legal Research Digest 24: Transit Bus Stops: Ownership, Liability, and Access is designed to help transit providers and government officials by exploring the different levels of ownership, liability, and maintenance associated with bus stops and bus shelters. The report identifies the categories of legal issues that are associated with ownership and liability and examines information on the problems and practices of others who have dealt with such problems, including protective provisions in franchise agreements and service provider contracts.
