Sun Prairie joining Madison’s bus rapid transit system

The city of Sun Prairie will join Madison Metro’s bus rapid transit (BRT) system in 2023, according to a report from the Sun Prairie Star.

Paratransit service in Sun Prairie using Madison Metro drivers and personnel will also be included in the plan.

A soft launch of the BRT service in Sun Prairie is expected on June 11, utilizing two local bus routes to handle any unexpected traffic patterns. The routes ensure traffic congestion will not interfere with local buses meeting the BRT bus at a park and ride on time, at every hour.

Additionally, for $3.25, pre-approved passengers will be able to ride paratransit to specific destinations in the Madison area, including University Hospital, the State Capitol, and more.
