TIER 1 EVALUATION

The Tier 1 Evaluation is a high-level analysis looking at which transit types and route options would be the best fit for the study corridor. An overview of the Tier 1 Evaluation is provided in the video below, and the full draft report can be found here

ROUTE OPTIONS

ROUTE OPTIONS
Route Options Map.PNG

The Tier 1 Evaluation identified two northern, one central, and three southern route options for bus rapid transit (BRT) in this corridor. North Option 1 to Brown Deer and South Option C to Ascension Franklin are being evaluated as part of an open BRT model, meaning the route would provide periodic service to those destinations with the primary route serving to Bayshore on the north or Drexel Town Square or Northwestern Mutual on the south end.

Total population and jobs per route-mile by route option is shown below. Click on the chart to view it in more detail.

STATION LOCATIONS

PRELIMINARY STATION LOCATIONS
Station Locations Map.PNG

Intersections where stations could be located along the route options are shown on the map. Preliminary station locations are 1/4 to 1/2 mile apart. The project team will be looking at ridership, equitable access, population, and jobs around each station to refine locations, in addition to public feedback. Stations are expected to be similar to those currently under construction along the East-West BRT line.

 

Stations will include: 

  • Level boarding

  • High-quality shelters with seating

  • Off-board ticketing

  • Real-time bus arrival information and schedules

  • Lighting

Comments can be provided in the interactive map linked below or by submitting them in the form on this page.

BUS-ONLY LANES

BUS-ONLY LANE CONVERSION OPTIONS

The Tier 1 evaluation identified bus rapid transit (BRT) as the transit type most appropriate for this corridor at this time. In the Tier 2 evaluation, currently under way, several BRT implementation options are being considered, including identifying options for bus-only lanes. Bus-only lanes are an important part of BRT service. Some of the benefits and impacts are listed below. 

 

Benefits: 

  • Greatly improves reliability of transit service

  • Provides traffic calming which improves safety

  • Provides travel time savings

 

Impacts:

  • Traffic delays in select locations are expected during short periods of the day

  • Reduction of on-street parking for residents and businesses

  • Bike lanes may be impacted or need to be modified 

Bus-only lanes would be possible within the existing roadway by converting a wide shoulder, a parking lane (or parking and bike lane), or a travel lane to a bus-only lane. Review these options on the map and provide feedback below.

Round 2 Public Meeting Materials

The second round of public involvement meetings took place virtually from June 22-24 and the public comment period was open through July 31. Meeting materials can be reviewed below and comments can be sent to the contact information listed below or by responding to the questions above. All comments will be reviewed and considered as part of the study. Input will be used to help the study team identify a recommended route option and transit type. Stakeholder engagement and public comments are encouraged throughout the study. 

Round 1 Public Meeting Materials

Public and stakeholder engagement is a critical aspect of this study. The first round of public involvement meetings took place virtually on February 23 and 24 and the public comment period ended on April 18. Meeting materials can be reviewed below. All comments that were received are being reviewed by the study team and will be considered as part of the study. Input is being used to guide updates to the project purpose and need, route alternatives, station locations and technology options under consideration. Stakeholder engagement and public comments are encouraged throughout the study.
