Omaha’s Metro Area Transit received a $14.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation (TIGER Grant) to build Omaha’s Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system. It’s kind of a big deal. Lauren Cencic from Metro, who is managing the project, will be on hand to give us an update and answer questions. As a reminder, we’ve formed a BRT task force whose aim is to ensure that Omaha’s BRT suits our city well.
