Connectivity is Key for Madison Success

The Madison Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project will be instrumental to move people efficiently between and within Madison Valley, Capitol Hill and the Center City. In earlier stages, this project included the possibility of building a parallel projected bike lanes on Union Street, from Broadway to 27th, in large part because the future Madison corridor will not accommodate people traveling by bicycle.

Now, the bike lanes have been all but cut from the project. We need to tell the Seattle Department of Transportation that in order for Madison BRT to be a success, it needs to ensure connectivity for everyone — including people who bike. 

 Safe streets advocates workshopping the busy 12th/Union/Madison intersection at the Madison BRT open house on March 15.
