Regional Bus Rapid Transit Feasibility Study

The Regional Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Feasibility Study was undertaken to better understand the interest in and feasibility of implementing BRT in the MAG region. The study identified a set of eight high-potential BRT corridors recommended for implementation, as well as possible long-term extensions to complete the regional network. As part of the study, a set of Regional Performance and Design Standards was developed to create a shared understanding of important characteristics needed to make BRT an attractive and time-competitive mode.

The study was a collaboration between MAG, Valley Metro, and the seven cities and towns within the project study area, including Phoenix, Mesa, Tempe, Scottsdale, Chandler, Glendale, and Gilbert.
