Please join SDOT at upcoming open houses to learn more about Madison Street Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), which will begin construction in 2018. SDOT has worked closely with the community to design Madison Street BRT and is continuing to seek community input. Madison Street BRT will provide high-frequency, fast, reliable, and safe public transportation between First Ave and Madison Valley.
At the open houses, the public is encouraged to speak with SDOT staff and provide feedback on the updated design, including roadway and station designs, along with access improvements planned along the corridor. Open house dates are:
- Wednesday, August 3
Seattle University, Campion Ballroom
914 E Jefferson St
- Thursday, August 4
11 a.m.-1 p.m.
1119 8th Ave
- Tuesday, August 9
Meredith Mathews East Madison YMCA
1700 23rd Ave
To give feedback online, visit MadisonBRT.participate.online from August 2-16.
Madison Street BRT will serve the Downtown, First Hill, Capitol Hill, Central Area, and Madison Valley neighborhoods. The project will improve transit access on the corridor, especially for neighborhoods south of Madison Street that may have fewer transit options.
Madison Street BRT is the first of seven new RapidRide lines to be delivered in Seattle as part of the voter-approved Levy to Move Seattle. Service on Madison Street is anticipated to begin in 2019.
