Feds Put $75 Million Toward San Francisco BRT Project
"The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA) today announced the award of $75 million in federal grant funds for construction of the Van Ness Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project," according to a press release on the Federal Transit Administration website.
Nuala Sawyer also reports on the project, describing the "two-mile project will include the creation of bus-only lanes on Van Ness Avenue, an important north-south corridor in the center of San Francisco that accommodates both the 49 and 47 bus lines." When complete in 2020, the Van Ness BRT is expected to accommodate 52,400 weekday trips.
