Bus Rapid Transit, or BRT, functions as a light rail system, but it can be built more quickly and at a lower cost than rail. Because it operates in dedicated lanes and has high-quality stations, it also creates the opportunity for development around station areas to support transit ridership. The study will develop Transit-Oriented Development (TOD)-supportive policies and design guidelines that encourage development that will create benefit for and benefit from the transit investment in the corridor linking the Gas South District and Sugarloaf Mills to the regional rail system. Station access guidelines that apply to both major and minor stations will be developed.
