Little by little, plans for a bus rapid transit line between Orem and Provo are getting closer to reality. The Mountainland Association of Governments board of directors recently voted to accept plans for the site of the state's first BRT system. Bus rapid transit runs like a light rail but uses buses instead of railcars, said Chad Eccles, a MAG transit program manager. A BRT system has lanes dedicated for its exclusive use, and buses stop at actual stations. Passengers purchase tickets before boarding the buses, which travel faster than normal buses and run more often — about every five or 10 minutes.
