Increase priority bus access and infrastructure in key transit corridors.
As the hub of the regional bus system, Downtown can, unfortunately, become one big bottleneck. The effects ripple outward, causing traffic congestion, decreased air quality, and unpleasant (and even unsafe) experiences for those waiting for the bus on crowded corners and near busy intersections. The Downtown Mobility Plan seeks to update the transit network to prioritize buses on certain streets at appropriate times of day to move more people, more efficiently. The result will be more streamlined bus movement, fewer buses mixing with cars, and delivery trucks, and better access for all, including people with limited mobility. The Plan calls for the busiest transit street in Downtown, Liberty Avenue, to become a priority corridor for these transit-optimizing improvements.
