DVRPC May Conduct Bus Rapid Transit and Path Study for the Newtown Line

The Bucks County Planning Commission has applied to DVRPC's Transit Support Program Special Studies for $100K to look at the feasibility of Bus Rapid Transit along with a companion Multi-Use Path along SEPTA's Newtown Branch which has been idle for more than 20 years.

The study may or may not be approved by the commision this year because there are some competing projects. More details to follow.
