Green Line Corridor Study

Bloomington Transit is studying the development of a new East-West transit corridor that would provide frequent bus service to a defined corridor providing connections to downtown Bloomington and Indiana University as well as local businesses and housing.

About the Project

​As Bloomington grows, so too has the need for sustainable, affordable transportation options.


Bloomington Transit, in partnership with Foursquare ITP is studying the feasibility of a bus rapid transit (BRT) corridor spanning east-west across the city, primarily on 3rd Street. Such a transit corridor would connect vital destinations utilizing high-frequency service, enhanced stations, and advanced vehicles.


Results of the BRT feasibility study are expected in late 2024. Focus areas of the study include:

  • Community input on transportation needs 

  • Current and projected ridership demands

  • Priority locations for enhanced stations

  • Recommendations for complementary infrastructure

  • Connections between BRT corridor and existing transit network

  • Project cost estimates

The BRT project is made possible through support from the City of Bloomington, and additional funding enabled through increased local income tax (LIT) revenue leveraged for federal grant programs.
