Best Bus Route in America Announced

1 Dec

GOOD magazine has announced the winners of their hunt for the “Best Bus Route in America.” The Midwest swept the final awards, winning both the judges vote and the people’s choice.

The top prize goes to Green Line Rapid Transit in Kansas City, Missouri. “The brand new Green Line rapid transit route features green technologies: hybrid electric buses, rain gardens, and a pervious concrete park and ride.”

The people’s choice goes to the #29 in Chicago. Reader Alex Burchard submitted a river view photo with flanking skyscrapers to make his case for the #29.   “CTA Bus Route #29 overlooking the Chicago River (West facing) as it crosses on State St. More reliable than the CTA Red line in my experience.”

See the fifteen finalists here, each with photo, some of the bus, others on it, and more than one of a smiling bus driver.

So what do you think? Are there any bus routes in New Jersey you would have nominated? And if so, why? Let us know at rhersh@gmtma.org. Photos welcome — we’ll post them here!
