Review Full Summary Report


Madison’s 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.

Metro Transit and the City of Madison are 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 winning design concept will be used by the City to develop a final architectural design for the stations.
