The Downtown Bus Corridor LCI Study will advance the design of a high-quality north-south Downtown transit lane corridor. The project will improve bus service speed and reliability and improve the efficiency of our Downtown street network.
Why is it important?
The Downtown district is rapidly growing. The City of Atlanta Department of City Planning forecasts that the city’s population will reach nearly 1.3 million people by 2050, and a significant portion of that growth is expected to occur Downtown.
In response to this unprecedented growth, CAP/ADID is committed to offering real choice in transportation, particularly to and through Downtown, as outlined in the Downtown Atlanta Master Plan (DAMP). The Plan identified transportation priorities such as street design, connectivity, and multi-modality to reduce congestion, improve access, support economic development, and manage Downtown streets for success.
Reliability of transit is critical to Downtown’s future success, and this project aims to improve bus service for Downtown commuters while ensuring a balanced, multi-modal network of streets.
