The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) in cooperation with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is performing an Alternatives Analysis Study for Premium Transit Service in the Union Station to Georgetown corridor. The study will evaluate premium transit on various alignments in the corridor and result in an Alternatives Analysis Report in the summer of 2013. Premium Transit is high quality transit that offers improved reliability and speed from normal bus operations. It is typically achieved through limited stops, faster fare collection, signal priority, and some level of dedicated right-of-way. Examples are Express Bus, Bus Rapid Transit, Streetcar, Light Rail and Metro.
