The City of Madison is exploring options for a new East-West BRT line and needs your input to make this project a success! Join us for a public meeting on Tuesday, May 14th, 6:00-7:30 PM at the Madison Senior Center, to learn about potential routes and station locations along the East-West BRT corridor.

The meeting will include a presentation and open house breakout rooms based on location (west, downtown, east). Participants will learn about project goals and be able to provide input on route options (particularly downtown and on the west side), station locations, investment priorities, and how BRT buses are accommodated along the roadway. There will be a follow-up public meeting in the summer to present and gather additional input on the draft corridor recommendation, using input gathered from this meeting.

This second public meeting is part of a broad public engagement effort that began in December 2018 to understand community needs, concerns, and priorities for BRT. We invite you to share your input and join us in exploring what BRT could mean for the future of transportation in Madison.

About BRT
BRT uses modern stations, larger specialized buses, dedicated lanes where feasible, and other enhancements to provide fast and affordable service to jobs, entertainment, and schools. BRT will complement existing Metro Transit routes and be our city’s next big step toward a more sustainable local transit system.
