Business grows where The Rapid goes.

Economic growth

Even if you don’t ride the bus, a strong public transportation system like the Rapid is vital to keep our communities moving forward. The Rapid connects customers and employees to local businesses, which ensures our local economies remain strong and vibrant. Businesses thrive with increased foot traffic on bus routes and when their workers have reliable transportation. Public transit eases traffic congestion, provides more access to parking for others, and even helps stabilize property values around routes because many people prefer to live in communities that offer convenient, affordable and efficient travel options. The Rapid’s service also encourages the development of walkable communities — improving our quality of life and fostering a greater sense of civic engagement. That’s why business grows where The Rapid goes.
