Waco Bus Rapid Transit Project Nears Completion of Preliminary Engineering and Environmental Review Process
Waco Transit System (WTS) is set to complete the preliminary engineering and environmental review process for the proposed 13-mile bus rapid transit (BRT) project. Over the last ten months WTS has been refining the BRT station design and conducting evaluations to confirm the location for the proposed BRT stations. Completing this critical process further advances the development of Waco’s first BRT project to provide safe, reliable and efficient transit service.

About the Waco BRT Project
The proposed 13-mile BRT project that is currently advancing in development would provide buses every 15-minutes during peak service hours; including extended service hours to 10 p.m. and service on Sundays to offer safe, reliable and efficient transit service. The purpose for implementing BRT service in Waco is to offer residents enhanced mobility and to provide improved access to jobs, medical and social services, and educational facilities. The proposed BRT route would also provide better and more efficient transfers to other routes operated by Waco Transit System. The BRT project is now at the next phase in the development process which involves preliminary engineering and an environmental review pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act.
