The next phase of bus rapid transit (BRT) is coming to Chicago! If you just asked yourself, "What is BRT?", our next GOOD Chicago event is for you.
Just last month, the city announced plans for Chicago's first full-scale bus rapid transit test along Ashland Avenue. This concept, which has been implemented in Bogota, Colombia and Cleveland, Ohio, boasts shorter travel times and more reliable service for commuters. At "Building the Future of Bus Rapid Transit in Chicago" our panel will explore the pros and cons of bus rapid transit, key elements of Chicago's BRT plan, and the effect BRT will have on citizens.
PLUS: After the discussion, we'll take what we learned and create a better bus stop prototype in a hands-on workshop led by design experts George and Sara Aye of Greater Good Studio.
