Three new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) routes are coming this fall, and that means better connections and convenience for transit riders. These routes link the east side and the west side of the city, and connect riders to major destinations.
The BRT’s that will be introduced are:
With the new BRT routes starting this fall, there will be revisions to dozens of existing bus routes across the city that connect to them.
Project status (as of May 19, 2018)
Public input is now closed, but the proposed route maps can still be viewed here.
In April and May we collected input from transit riders about the proposed bus route revisions. Online feedback was open from April 16 to May 18, 2018 and we received over 4,000 contributions from the public. Additionally, we held 9 public open houses and spoke with over 1,000 transit users in-person.
The project team is now reviewing the public input, which will inform the final plans for new or revised bus routes. In late June a public report on What We Heard and What We Did will be released. Bus routes will be finalized this summer, and the new routes will come into effect in Fall 2018.
