Alexandria, Montgomery County, Moving Forward With Bus Rapid Transit
While Arlington County pursues planning and funding an obsolete, expensive, inflexible, and dangerous transit alternative for Columbia Pike - streetcars - adjacent jurisdictions, Alexandria and Montgomery County, are moving forward with bus rapid transit.
Although the Northern Virginia news media won't feature bus rapid transit you can read how BRT is being planned elsewhere by searching the Patch news blogs "Patch news bus rapid transit".
Here's another photo of a state-of-the-art bus rapid transit vehcile that's currently in service. No dangerous tracks, no overhead wires.
