Bus Transformation Project

A better way to get there

Project Description

Buses are important to the region’s transportation system. They extend the reach of affordable, sustainable, high capacity transit into many communities across the region. Buses help people to get to jobs and school and medical appointments, run errands, and connect to rail and airports.

Recent transportation innovations – such as Lyft and Uber, bikeshare, carshare, scooters, and others – as well as changes in people’s travel habits mean that it’s time to look at how local bus can be a better travel option. These new innovations are exciting, and we want to make sure local bus service works with them to provide equity and accessibility to everyone in the region.

The Bus Transformation Project is not a corridor study or a service plan. The project will create a bold, new vision and a collaborative action plan for the future of bus in the region. The project will explore all factors that influence the quality of bus service, from technology and transit priority, to funding structures and service provision roles.

"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."

- Rob Puentes, Executive Steering Committee Chair
