What is an Arterial Transitway? Finding an answer to that question is actually what Metro Transit is doing with this study. It will probably be more like the existing bus system than the Cedar BRT, but they also appear to have enlarged their subject of study to include the streetcars being studied by Minneapolis. It will almost certainly involve wider stop spacing, upgraded stations with maps and ticket machines, and signal priority.
