The Wilshire Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project is intended to further improve bus passenger travel times, service reliability, ridership of the existing Wilshire BRT system, and encourage a shift from automobile use to public transit. When implemented, bus passenger travel times are expected to improve by an average of 24%. Up to a 10% mode shift from mixed flow to bus use is projected. Based on the bus travel time improvements and associated ridership increases experienced with the Metro Rapid Program to-date, transit ridership along the Wilshire corridor is anticipated to increase between 15% and 20%. The project is being constructed in collaboration with the City and County of Los Angeles. The majority of the project funding is being provided through a federal Very Small Starts grant.
