 North-South BRT Corridor 

You’re invited to a Chapel Hill Transit community meeting to discuss plans for multi-use paths for cyclists and pedestrians along a major transit corridor that extends from Eubanks Road to Southern Village.

The meeting will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 4, at the Chapel Hill Public Library 100 Library Drive.

As part of its plans for the North-South Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) route, Chapel Hill Transit will expand dedicated space for cyclists and pedestrians along more than 80 percent of the route.

At the community meeting, Chapel Hill Transit will discuss opportunities for multi-use paths, as well as roadway and budgetary considerations that will impact final plans. Attendees can share how they currently use bike and pedestrian lanes and provide input that will be considered in the final design.

The North-South BRT system is projected to be completed in 2022. BRT combines high-capacity buses with exclusive traffic lanes and traffic signal priority to decrease travel times and improve the rider experience.

Learn more at www.nsbrt.org. Follow the project on Twitter @chtransit and #nsbrt.
