Cincinnati Metro is asking for feedback from citizens on the corridor design for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT).

Four BRT workshops will be held for residents to give feedback on station locations, station features, map out connections and more. The workshops will feature a presentation with activities, and residents that attend will receive a meal and a one-ride bus pass from Metro. Find full BRT workshop information on Metro's website.

Here's when each corridor's workshops will be held:

Hamilton Corridor

Feb. 21
5:30-7 p.m.
College Hill Recreation Center
5545 Belmont Ave.

Feb. 22
5:30-7 p.m.
The Factory Event Center
1546 Knowlton St.

Reading Corridor

Feb. 23
5:30-7 p.m.
Corryville Recreation Center
2823 Eden Ave.

Feb. 27
5:30-7 p.m.
Community Action Agency
1740 Langdon Farm Road

BRT is part of the Reinventing Metro plan, which Hamilton County voters approved in 2020 with the passage of Issue 7, providing additional funding to support new transit innovations. Metro says construction on the two corridors is scheduled to begin sometime in 2025, with the Federal Transit Administration helping Metro along the way to stay on schedule.

A BRT corridor requires its own dedicated bus lane to make the speed and efficiency of the rapid route possible. Because more riders will board BRT at once, they'll pay their fare in advance, speeding up the process. There will be fewer stops than with traditional bus lines, and riders can expect a BRT bus to arrive every 10-15 minutes.
