BRT is Actually Kind of Cool
One of the things that I'm excited about for San Francisco is the Geary Corridor and Van Ness Ave plans for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT). It looks like both are in the EIR phase of planning now, but if things go smoothly we could soon be experiencing a whole new shift in how we move about the City. You can read more about the Van Ness plan here.
When I first heard of BRT I wasn't exactly thrilled about the idea. Why invest in an expensive bus service project when everyone knows that light rail is the smart choice? But if I'm not mistaken, and I hope someone here at Reset SF will set me straight if I'm wrong, doesn't BRT basically lay the path for a future light rail project 20 years down the road?
BRT is a great move towards a more mobile and accessible city. Anyone else excited?
