The virtual meeting gave future riders more insights about the project and ask questions directly to the project team.

This transportation service will offer a much more premium experience, when compared to a park and ride service or a local bus route. Many would consider it better as the buses will have their own lanes, which means they’ll never be slowed down by cars.

The whole project will cost nearly $450 million dollars and is expected to be done by 20-27.
