The Rapid Transit Experience

The southeast Michigan proposed BRT system, models those found in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Chicago, Boston, Hartford, San Antonio and other major cities across the U.S. The system will include exclusive transit lanes throughout the corridors, as well as priority at traffic signals. BRT stations will include raised platforms for faster boarding, more frequent service and stations every half-mile to mile for more efficient trips compared to standard bus service. BRT has many of the same characteristics as light rail and includes high-tech vehicles, weather- protected stations and real-time travel information. During peak hours, BRT will run 10-15 minutes between vehicles and 15-20 minutes during non-peak hours. Maps, station locations and travel time comparisons can be found here.
