Madison will soon have its first bus rapid transit (BRT) route, going from Junction Road on the west side to East Towne Mall on the East Side. How does biking fit in with BRT and local buses? Join our meeting for a presentation from Metro and an opportunity to ask questions and provide comment! Possible topics:

  • How are bikes are accommodated onboard buses?
  • What kind of bike parking should be provided at stations?
  • What is important for making safe and comfortable interactions between bikes and buses in bus lanes?
  • What improvements for biking come as part of the BRT route?

The virtual meeting will take place on October 25 from 6 to 7:30 pm. Meeting ID: 840 0764 9429 Passcode: 648703
