The Woodward Avenue Transit Study is an environmental review of the locally preferred alternative (LPA) that resulted from the Woodward Avenue Rapid Transit Alternatives Analysis (AA), conducted from 2012 to 2014. The LPA recommends bus rapid transit (BRT) along the 27-mile Woodward Avenue corridor from Downtown Detroit to Downtown Pontiac that will operate within the existing right-of-way, servicing 26 stations primarily on Woodward Avenue through 11 communities in Wayne and Oakland Counties.

The primary goals of the Woodward Avenue Transit Study are to:
- Analyze impacts on the human and physical environment; typical areas of impacts are Traffic, Noise and Vibration,and Environmental Justice
- Develop prototypical station designs
- Facilitate a local decision-making process that identifies a project and financial strategies that will ensure federal funding support
- Advance the Woodward Avenue Transit Study into the engineering phase
- Facilitate a transparent and inclusive public engagement process to include all stakeholders
