Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) background

SORTA’s Reinventing Metro plan offers Cincinnati new transit services like Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) that will better connect our community to jobs, education, health care, and entertainment, while also helping grow our regional economy. Reinventing Metro is focusing on the following:

  • Frequencyshorter waits with service every 15 minutes or better on major routes.
  • Amenities-safer, more comfortable places to wait and transfer. New benches, shelters and transit centers. Real-time signs, improved mobile apps and new buses featuring Wi-Fi and charging ports.
  • Span-Extending how long buses run each day with 24-hour service on major corridors.
  • Travel times-decreasing time on the bus with faster trip times and improved connections through crosstown routes and two Bus Rapid Transit corridors.

Here are several resources available to review before the general meeting about these milestones from the stakeholder advisory committee update.

  • Step 1 is Completed: Hamilton and Reading are moving forward as BRT Corridors; Glenway and Montgomery are moving forward as Enhanced Corridors 
  • Step 2 Design Begins and outreach is already underway 
  • Find out more about the actions under these items in more detail in this Reinventing Metro committee update.
