Transit Modes and Technology
What is BRT?
Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) provides reliable travel time experiences through the use of dedicated lanes, transit signal priority technology, and dedicated stations that offer seamless connections to local bus and rail services.
While transit buses usually operate on surface streets with other vehicles in “mixed traffic,” BRT systems include “fully dedicated” lanes on sections of the route, in which only public transportation and emergency vehicles may operate.

What is ART?
Arterial Rapid Transit (ART) is a frequent all-day bus service that travels mostly on arterial roads. ART operates primarily in mixed traffic through queue jump lanes at key intersections with transit signal priority (TSP).
