Abstract: DVRPC conducted this project to take a fresh look at transit needs for the Roosevelt Boulevard corridor in response to public requests for improved transit. This project’s focus was on developing improvement strategies that could be achieved at grade within the existing cross section, at comparatively lower cost and in a shorter timeframe than the subway/elevated line that has historically been the focus of transit planning efforts for the corridor—and which remains a long-term ambition. This project drew on a collaborative, workshop-oriented approach to develop two Bus Rapid Transit service concepts that could be implemented in a phased way: a short-term enhanced bus service concept and a future exclusive busway that requires further concept development.
