BRT ROUTING OPTIONS -
TELL US WHAT YOU THINK
The BRT Study team wants your input on BRT service and route options to make your commute easier between Boulder and Longmont.
The options being considered are shown on the maps below. Each Option has different patterns, bus frequency, and number of stops/stations. There is also a list of the stations that the different patterns go to.
BRT ROADWAY LAYOUT OPTIONS
BRT Preliminary Engineering
The Study Team is analyzing roadway improvements for a faster and more reliable transit commute, including bus-on-shoulder operations, BRT bypass/queue jump lanes, and BRT/managed lanes for 1 BRT Pattern, 2 BRT Patterns, and 4 BRT Patterns.
The bus is able to drive on the highway’s shoulder any time of the day when traffic is going 35 mph or slower. The bus can travel on the shoulder at a maximum speed of 35 mph.
A highway lane that optimizes traffic flow by limiting it’s use to buses, high occupancy vehicles carrying at least 3 people (HOV 3+) and vehicles with fewer than 3 people, willing to pay a toll.
TransitSignal Priority and BRT Bypass Lane/Queue Jump
Widen the intersection, and approach, to add an additional vehicle lane for buses only. The bus only bypass/queue jump lane is accompanied by a “transit-priority signal” which gives the buses a head-start over traffic and allows it to merge into the regular travel lanes immediately beyond the signal.
