Region’s first ‘Better Bus’ pitched for Roosevelt Boulevard

Philadelphia – Roosevelt Boulevard could get the region’s first Bus Rapid Transit-type transportation system – a “Better Bus.”
Midway through a Roosevelt Boulevard transit analysis, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) is moving toward a bus rapid transit (BRT)-lite recommendation. The DVRPC sees establishing a branded “Better Bus” option – with express service between carefully selected stops, a designated or prioritized bus lane and transit signal prioritization – as an achievable, early-action step toward improving mass transit on the Boulevard.
