We’ve passed an important milestone with the Federal Transit Authority (FTA) moving the Madison Bus Rapid Transit (Madison BRT) project, also known as the RapidRide G Line, forward in the Small Starts Grant review process.
A draft report released by the FTA this month determined SDOT has the resources, skills, capacity, and sound plan necessary to move forward with the Madison Bus Rapid Transit Project. Read more about this important project on our website.
The Madison BRT—RapidRide G Line will create a fast, frequent, and safe east-to-west public transportation line between 1st Ave in downtown’s Central Business District and Martin Luther King Jr Way.
This is the culmination of much hard work by many at SDOT, the FTA, and across the City to move a project of critical importance to our transit network forward and move many steps closer to qualifying for the City’s first Small Starts Grant funding, which will cover about 45 percent of total costs toward the transit project.
