BRT Updates-- Next meeting 12/17/2020

December 5, 2020 6:45 PM

Hello neighbors! 

A presentation regarding west side updates to the proposed Bus Rapid Transit routes and construction was held last Thursday. If you missed the presentation, or want to watch again, you can find it here

We will be having a second meeting, where neighbors can ask more questions that were not answered at the first meeting. If you have questions, please feel free to send them to me at, so I can make sure they will be answered.

Please join us for a virtual neighborhood meeting where we will hear about the planned first phase of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system here in Madison - and more specifically, some possible changes to Whitney Way and Sheboygan Avenue. The meeting will be held on Thursday, December 17, 6:00 p.m. City of Madison Department of Transportation officials will update participants on the progress of the BRT project (the first phase of which will operate between East Towne and West Towne).

Proposed modifications to Whitney Way and Sheboygan Avenue will be presented at this meeting.  For Whitney Way, the project is considering the creation of bus-only lanes running down the center of the roadway on Whitney Way, as opposed to the curb side of the street.  Center-running bus lanes have several advantages, such as allowing for better bicycle accommodations and fostering an improved pedestrian environment.  The creation of center-running bus lanes - with passenger stations located in the street's median - could also potentially change the traffic lane configuration and impact on-street parking.

You can join the virtual meeting using your computer, smartphone or tablet, or you can listen in via telephone. You will receive login information after registering at:
