Bus Rapid Transit


Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a combination of technology, design features and operating practices that allows buses to increase speed and reduce travel times. BRT can be found on arterial streets or highways and ranges from the implementation of Transit Signal Priority (TSP) along arterial routes to the erection of dedicated rights-of-way. BRT greatly improves public transportation by providing faster, more dependable service.

A major Pace vision for the future is to create a 480-mile network of BRT on 23 corridors throughout northeastern Illinois. Service would be greatly improved along these 480 miles of arterial roads and highways with Transit Signal Priority (TSP), queue jump lanes, the usage of shoulder lanes and ramp metering.
