    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.


    • 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.

    BRT versus RAPID/Express. BRT takes the capacity and speed of light rail and combines it with the flexibility and simplicity of a bus system. BRT: areas served, major roads; users, all users; operating hours, all day; frequency, approximately every 10 minutes during the day; capacity, 100 to 150 passengers per bus. RAPID/Express bus: areas served, park-and-ride service to downtown; users, specifically for commuters; operating hours, during peak a.m. and p.m. 'rush' hour; frequency, approximately every 10 to 30 minutes during peak 'rush' hour depending on routes; capacity, 60 to 80 passengers per bus
