While the I-15 Express Lanes are now fully operational, not all of our work is done. Construction of transit projects is ongoing and planned to complement the Express Lanes.
Several projects along the Express Lanes Corridor are currently under construction to complete the infrastructure necessary for the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, a key component of the Express Lanes. These planned improvements will support the start of the Rapid bus service in 2014. The Rapid will greatly expand the current bus system using the Express Lanes. The Rapid will run more often, have longer hours of service, and go to more places. Click on the map below to learn more about improvements to the BRT system and new transit stations. View Fact Sheet
Mid-City Centerline BRT Stations: Bus-only lanes between I-8 and I-805, along with new freeway level transit stations at El Cajon Boulevard and University Avenue will be built, including elevators, pedestrian walkways, shelters, next vehicle arrival signs, ticket vending machines, and other architectural amenities. This project is in final design and is proposed to begin construction in 2014. View fact sheet or environmental document.
Funding for the I-15 BRT Transit Projects comes from TransNet, a half-cent sales tax approved by voters.
MTS operates the current Rapid Express bus services and will operate the future Rapid bus services once service begins. Caltrans operates and maintains the I-15 Express Lane corridor.
