Transportation officials have scheduled a public meeting Sept. 10 to look at Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) — express bus service — in the Madison metropolitan area.
The meeting is set for the Senior Center, 330 W. Mifflin St., beginning at 6 p.m.
BRT is a high-frequency, limited-stop service that offers an improved customer experience in busy transit corridors, according to a news release from Bill Schaefer, planning manager for the Madison Area Transportation Planning Board.
"Faster service is accomplished by speeding passenger boarding, transit priority at traffic signals and express service," Schaefer said.
The meeting is in cooperation with Metro Transit, the city's bus service, and the Capital Area Regional Planning Commission (CARPC).
The study of BRT will explore where and how to implement a system.
"Station improvements, information technology and improved service reliability and vehicle comfort create a more user-friendly experience," Schaefer said.
