Customer Service Analysis Reports and Service Changes
Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)
The Pioneer Valley Transit Authority (PVTA) has identified the State Street corridor as a prime opportunity to introduce Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) as a new transit service for the Springfield region. The 7.1 mile corridor is a major east-west connector in the City and one of the most heavily traveled bus routes in the PVTA system, with more than 5,000 riders a day. A recent comprehensive study proposed developing a BRT route along this corridor. This route would be the first such service (outside of the Metro Boston area) in Massachusetts and will provide increased service frequency, shorter travel times, improved stop amenities and new economic development opportunities.
