Washington Area Bus Transformation Project

Since September 2018, the Bus Transformation Project (BTP) has successfully focused attention on the importance of our region’s bus system and the needs of its riders. With 26 recommendations, the Strategy and Action Plan outline a path to transform the system into a fast, frequent, reliable, affordable service that feels unified. With recent endorsements of the Strategy, agencies and officials who are responsible for the quality of bus service must build on this momentum and take action, collaboratively. Read the latest from Rob Puentes, chair of the BTP’s Executive Steering Committee here.

The Bus Transformation Project is a plan to transform bus in the Washington region and improve service and customer experience, creating a more cohesive system that works for riders. Input from stakeholders, riders, and the public and extensive research and analysis formed the basis of the Bus Transformation Strategy and Action Plan. The Strategy symbolizes 'what ' will change, and the Action Plan details 'how ' things should change. Download the executive summaries and full documents for both the Strategy and the Action Plan below.

Project Description

Fast, frequent, reliable, affordable buses on our streets and roadways are critical to our region’s prosperity. Buses have a vital role to play because they make efficient use of roadways by transporting large numbers of riders safely, conveniently, and affordably, and they provide service in areas not accessible by Metrorail.

The Bus Transformation Project is not a corridor study or a service plan. Based on extensive research and public engagement, this project has developed a Strategy with a bold, new vision and a series of recommendations to guide the future of bus in the region. Public input from across all demographics and areas in the region indicated that transforming the bus system means doing the basics better - that is, providing fast, frequent, reliable, affordable bus service that feels like a unified system and is not beholden to geographic or funding boundaries. These recommendations are meant to do just that. Since the Strategy was finalized in September, an Action Plan has been developed to set out critical activities and milestones over the next ten years of implementing the Strategy. The Action Plan connects activities and actors with tangible outcomes that clearly benefit the region’s bus system and its riders.

"Buses play a critical role in connecting people throughout this region to opportunities. In this time of rapid change in transportation options, we need a shared vision for the best role of bus in our transportation network. The Bus Transformation Project will identify and implement steps to make local bus a world class travel option for all of the region’s residents."
