BLUE STREAK BUS RAPID TRANSIT DEMONSTRATION PROJECT

Survey results and other data collected during Phase 2 of the Blue Streak bus rapid transit demonstration project in Seattle, Washington, are presented. The purpose of this project is four-fold: (1) evaluation of the transit patronage which can be generated by rapid transit bus service operating partially on exclusive rights-of-way; (2) establishment of a warrant for reserved freeway lanes and/or ramps for such exclusive bus use; (3) evaluation of the sensitivity of potential transit users to improvements in transit service; and (4) evaluation of a change of mode potential by studying the operation of a park-and-ride facility in conjunction with bus rapid transit service.
