April 30, 2021 9:36 AM

Metro Transit has released BRT station concepts that have moved on to the next round of its $10,000 contest.

The general public is now asked to give feedback on each of the designs. Give comments on likes, dislikes, concerns, or things you might want to see done differently.

City of Madison staff will then take this public feedback, consult with various experts and regulatory agencies, and compile a summary report, evaluating each concept on the following criteria:

Enhancing goals of overall BRT system (transit quality, comfort, reliability)
Aesthetic appeal
Uniquely recognizable as Madison's BRT
Structural flexibility to conform to different platform sizes
Conformity to surrounding historic buildings
Non-structural components that can be customized for neighborhood context
Safety & accessibility

First, second and third place winners will then be decided. The first place winner will receive a $10,000 award.

The deadline to provide feedback is Sunday, May 2!

Entries can be reviewed here:

Contest Background

Madison's upcoming East-West Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project will introduce over 30 stations along the BRT corridor. These stations are intended to improve transit quality, comfort, and reliability, but they also can be an architectural asset to the City of Madison.

The stations will largely use the same architecture at all locations, so it is important to find a design that fits in with varied contexts, while also being easily recognizable as a BRT station.
With that in mind, the City of Madison is sponsoring a design concept contest, which is open for both professionals and non-professionals, to submit their design ideas, with the winners awarded a cash prize of up to $10,000. 

The City will use these design concepts to develop a final architectural design for the stations. Submissions are not expected to be fully fleshed out designs, but rather conceptual renderings intended to lead into a design process.
