The new MAX BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) line is up and running along 35th South. I tested it out the other day and was pretty impressed. I wish all bus routes were as convinient to use.

You get to wait at a decent looking bus shelter, board without waiting to pay the driver. I'm not sure if it was by accident or by design, but we hit almost every light on green.Having a TRAX/BRT route map posted at the station makes it feel like more than just a bus:

The interior is much nicer than a typical UTA bus too:
