There’s a reason that the governor’s budget centers on investing in our bus network — it’s the workhorse of the system. This would be the biggest expansion in local bus service in a generation.
The investment moves toward a faster, more frequent, and reliable service for millions of people across the metro area, adding one bus rapid transit (BRT) line a year for the next decade.
The A Line has set the example. Since introducing BRT service, ridership throughout the A Line corridor has increased by about one-third. This success shows that improving speed, reliability, shelters, real-time schedule information, and other features attracts more riders.
