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), a key component of the Express Lanes. These planned improvements will support the start of the BRT service in mid-2014. The BRT will greatly expand the current bus system using the Express Lanes. The BRT 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 bus 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 Commuter Express Bus Service and will operate the future I-15 BRT system once service begins.
