Last week, 1000 Friends of Wisconsin was invited to the groundbreaking for Madison’s new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line.
Identified as a “mover and influencer,” 1000 Friends has continually advocated for this new transit line which will serve as a backbone of Madison Metro’s networking moving forward.
BRT is one of the most cost-effective ways to address pressing transportation needs, enhance economic development and improve quality of life in our communities. BRT has been found to improve traffic safety, reduce congestion, and creates new development along its routes.
Thank you to Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway and the City of Madison for their leadership bringing BRT to Madison. It was an honor to be invited to this important groundbreaking!
