BRT in Madison
- BRT Service: BRT will run approximately every 15 minutes, stopping less frequently than regular buses and running most of the day, including higher frequencies on the weekends.
- BRT Features: There will be dedicated lanes for over half of the route, intersections with Traffic Signal Priority, larger (articulated buses) that will be specially branded, and high-quality stations.
Help us 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 Madison Metro routes and be our city’s next big step toward a sustainable local transit system.
Cities around the country are launching BRT systems to improve transit reliability, shorten travel times, reduce congestion, and support economic development.
+ BRT Only Lanes: separate or preferential lanes allow BRT to stay on schedule and move more efficiently through mixed traffic environments.
