EmX Franklin Corridor: BRT Project Evaluation

Since 1996 Lane Transit District (LTD) actively pursued the development of a bus rapid transit (BRT) system. As part of the update process of TransPlan, a 20-year government plan to spend $1.53 billion on the transportation system of the Eugene-Springfield metropolitan area, BRT became an important piece in the analysis of how to meet statewide transportation goals, and in 1998 it was determined that the BRT system would be provided for the Eugene/Springfield area. The EmX (Emerald Express), as the BRT system was named, would operate along the Franklin Corridor and was planned to be comparable to light rail system by providing comparable speed, convenience, and comfort. Final adoption of the project was made by the LTD Board, Eugene and Springfield City Councils, and the Lane County Commission.
