The BRT alternatives would provide higher speed, high frequency bus service operating in a combination of new, dedicated bus lanes and existing, mixed-flow traffic lanes. Bus priority methods such as synchronized traffic signal timing and preferential treatment of bus arrivals at signalized intersections would also be incorporated into the BRT system. The BRT alternatives also include all of the additional transit service provided in the TSM/TDM alternative, except where those services overlap with the BRT service itself. The BRT alternatives are illustrated in Figure ES-4.
BRT-1. Alternative BRT-1 would provide BRT service between Los Angeles Union Station and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in La Cañada Flintridge.
BRT-6. Alternative BRT-6 would provide BRT service between Whittier Boulevard, just south of the Gold Line Atlantic Station, and Pasadena City College (PCC) and the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena.
BRT-6A. Alternative BRT-6A is a design variation of Alternative BRT-6 but with a different terminal loop than Alternative BRT-6. Instead of traveling both eastbound and westbound on Colorado Boulevard, Alternative BRT-6A would travel only eastbound on Colorado Boulevard and then return westbound on California Boulevard after stopping at PCC and Caltech.
