BRT Southeast Corridor Public Meeting

JTA is conducting an environmental assessment for the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Southeast Corridor project. The potential improvements being studied involve an 11.6-mile alignment on existing surface streets and predominantly within existing right of way. The proposed alignment extends from Downtown at Kings Avenue/Manning Street to a multimodal hub at Avenues Walk/The Avenues/Southside Boulevard. Alignment and station alternatives are currently under study that will allow JTA to provide improved service, minimize costs and improve transit operations.
