Effects of Light-Rail Transit and Bus Rapid Transit on Traffic in a Travel Corridor

September 9, 2021 2:35 pm

In studies for the Utah Transit Authority and Utah Department of Transportation, the Metropolitan Research Center at the University of Utah has quantified the impacts of fixed guideway transit lines on traffic in transit corridors. The session will delve into reasons why the BRT impact was less than the LRT impact, and implications for transit investments in the region. It will also discuss the recent decline in LRT ridership, the recent increase in traffic on 400 South, and the lack of affordable housing in those new apartment buildings along 400 South.
