MLK AND MIDTOWN BUS RAPID TRANSIT (BRT)
CORRIDORS COMING SOON!

Since it launched in 2007, San Joaquin Regional Transit District’s (RTD) three BRT corridors have experienced extraordinary growth in ridership. To accommodate our customers’ demand for this high-quality service throughout the system, RTD plans to add the Midtown and MLK BRT corridors that will reduce travel time for passengers and will provide conveniences that will attract additional customers to the system. Delivery of these two key corridors is a critical component of RTD’s plan to build a better transportation system and provide a backbone of high-quality transit service for the city of Stockton. Both new BRT corridors will be over 6 miles each.

 

 


 

 

 

FACTS

RTD purchased 60’ articulated buses to accommodate the first corridor’s remarkably high ridership.

The proposed corridors serve some of the most economically disadvantaged areas of Stockton.

The City of Stockton and the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) actively support these BRT corridors.
