Help define the future of public transit in Madison!
The City of Madison is exploring options for a new east-west bus rapid transit (BRT) line to make our city’s transit system work faster and smarter. BRT uses dedicated lanes where feasible and modern stations to provide fast and cost-effective service to jobs, entertainment, and schools. Madison’s BRT will complement existing Metro routes and be our city’s next big step toward a more sustainable local transit system. A Public Kickoff Meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 12th from 6-8pm at the Madison Central Library, Room 302. Come to learn more about Madison’s BRT project and to provide input on what is important to you!
