Check out the great discussions that happened at TBARTA's Station Area Charrettes, part of the Regional Rapid Transit (RRT) project. In March 2020, we held six charrettes in neighborhoods along the planned RRT route where stations are planned. We asked attendees to describe their ideal neighborhood, tell us where the station might work best, and what amenities they hoped would be included when the stations are built.

Artist Rendering of RRT Vehicle Crossing Exit/Entrance Ramp
This artist rendering shows the RRT vehicle traveling in a dedicated lane on the outside shoulder and crossing the area where automobiles and trucks exit the interstate. The dedicated lane on the interstate will go from a solid color (likely red) to striped to warn vehicles that a bus may be in the shoulder. Additional safety precautions will be in place to ensure the vehicles and the buses interact safely at the ramps along the interstate.
