As a follow up to our earlier correspondence regarding public meetings, you are invited to review and provide feedback on proposed station locations and designs for a Bus Rapid Transit line being planned in Des Moines.

 The survey is available at [ the link above] and will close end of day Monday, Oct. 12.

 Bus Rapid Transit, or BRT, can be described as rail-like service delivered with rubber-wheeled vehicles. Several features differentiate a BRT line from a regular local bus route, including faster travel, stations instead of stops and real-time departure signs.

 The first BRT line would be developed on what is today Route 60 - University / Ingersoll, a two-way, bidirectional loop route that operates on University and Ingersoll avenues between 42nd Street and through downtown Des Moines on Grand Avenue/Locust Street and 6th Avenue/7th Street. Building the project is contingent on funding.
