CTA picks four heavily used routes for bus-only lanes
Here are some features of the plan:
- Prepayment locations along along the bus routes to allow speedier front and back boarding.
- Traffic lights that automatically turn green when they detect the hybrid buses approaching.
- Bus stops about a half-mile apart.
- Increased parking fees in downtown garages.
The city and the CTA must implement the pilot bus-only routes by April 30, 2010, or lose the $153 million in federal funding.
I like it.
