    Project Overview

    Bus Rapid Transit, or BRT, is a high capacity bus service that provides a fast, reliable, and convenient transit experience — and this new transit option is coming to Phoenix! BRT, approved by Phoenix voters in 2015, is being developed now and we need your input on where to add BRT in Phoenix.

    Quick Facts

    • BRT improves speed, reliability, convenience and overall transit experience.
    • BRT is a key component in the Transportation 2050 Plan.
    • BRT elements can include enhanced stations, custom buses, advanced fare collection, unique branding, dedicated lanes and transit spot improvements.
    • BRT is different than RAPID and Express bus service.
