The RTA Delivers. We’ve built 163 of the 200 bus pullouts promised in the 2006 plan. Bus pullouts allow transit vehicles to move out of the travel lanes while passengers board and alight.
In areas where buses stop for long periods of time along major arterials, pullouts prevent buses from delaying traffic in the through lanes. Traffic can continue to flow in the through lane, and motorists do not need to resort to lane changes to avoid traffic delays behind stopped buses.
