WHAT IS THE TASK FORCE ON GOVERNMENT STRUCTURE?

Do you know when the City is making key decisions that will impact your neighborhood? Or who is making those decisions? Do you have the time, resources, or know-how to voice your opinion to City Government?
The Task Force on Government Structure is asking these questions and others to find out if changes to city government structure could help make the City work more effectively for all of its residents, and, particularly, for residents of color and low income.

JOIN THE CONVERSATION!

Everyone is invited to join the Task Force at an Open House on August 28, 2019 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at The Atrium, 2300 South Park Street. Help shape Madison's government at the Open House, where together we will explore ways Madison can improve resident engagement and city decision making.

Project Description

The City of Madison is exploring options for a new east-west bus rapid transit (BRT) line. BRT uses dedicated lanes where feasible, modern stations, larger specialized buses, and other enhancements to provide fast and cost-effective service to jobs, entertainment, and schools. Madison's BRT will complement existing Madison Metro routes and be our city's next big step toward a more sustainable local transit system.

The goal of the Madison East-West BRT Planning Study is to develop a plan and initial design for the city's first BRT route. The city will use this plan to apply for federal funding to complete design and construction. The planning study will conclude in fall 2019, with construction of the east-west BRT route possible in 2024. Among the details to be identified through this study are the start/finish locations, station locations, street routes, and locations for infrastructure such as dedicated bus lanes.

 

Get Involved!

The City of Madison invites community members to participate in exploring what BRT is and what it could mean for Madison's public transit system. Madison BRT should reflect the range of community needs, concerns, and priorities. Please share your input to make this project a success!
