The Red Line is CDTA's first BRT line, first launching in 2011. Since then, the Red Line has become an integral part of the Capital Region's transit network. CDTA is currently developing a slew of BRT station upgrades and roadway/intersection improvements along the Red Line set to be complete in 2022 and 2023.
CDTA is working on a related station upgrade and intersection improvement project called the Red Line Update.
