Take note, Chicago, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority’s HealthLine is the highest rated BRT line in the United States and a prime example how it can be successful.
The HealthLine runs more than 6 miles along Euclid Ave., connecting to other buses and major job centers between downtown and and University Circle. The 24-hour line uses dedicated bus lanes, has its own traffic signals and has a few stations located on road medians.
People can easily connect to jobs, schools, hospitals and major cultural institutions. And their average commute times are reduced by 10 minutes.
More people are able to explore car-free transportation options.
The project made streetscape improvements to sidewalks and crossings and added bike lanes.
