The Transportation - MAX
The Mason Corridor will feature Northern Colorado's first Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, known as MAX. BRT is similar to light rail transit and uses environmentally-friendly, modern rubber-tired vehicles.
MAX will operate faster than auto travel along College Avenue and provide ten minute departures during peak hours. MAX is designed to emphasize speed and convenience with an exclusive guideway and easy boarding. MAX BRT will get you there quickly. The new MAX BRT stations will connect the Downtown Transit Center with the South Transit Center (to be completed in 2014) and will incorporate high-quality passenger amenities including, real-time bus arrival information and Park-n-Rides along the corridor.
MAX Travel along the Mason Corridor
MAX will operate within a new exclusive roadway/guideway between the South Transit Center and north of Horsetooth Road and then again between Drake Road and University Avenue. Mason Street and McClelland Drive will accommodate mixed traffic with both MAX BRT vehicles and general motorists.
