South of Drexel Avenue there are three route options being considered.

UPDATED ROUTE OPTIONS MAP
Intersections where stations could be located along the route options can be viewed in detail by clicking the map below. To match the typical characteristics of the transit types being considered, stations are placed approximately 1/2 mile apart and in locations with intersecting transit routes (to make easy transfers), high existing ridership, or where the existing land use supports transit.
