FTA Marks Opening of New Jacksonville Bus Rapid Transit Line

FTA Acting Administrator K. Jane Williams today participated in an opening ceremony for a new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line in Jacksonville, Fla.

The 18.5-mile East Corridor Red Line is the fourth segment of a five-phased First Coast Flyer BRT system planned for the Jacksonville area. The project will enhance regional connectivity by providing better access to educational and employment opportunities in downtown Jacksonville and throughout the Jacksonville metropolitan area. FTA is contributing $16.9 million toward the East Corridor project through FTA’s Capital Investment Grants (CIG) Program.
