Bus Rapid Transit is Win-Win-Win (Video)


Most Cities Need BRT
We've mentioned it previously, bus rapid transit (BRT) is great! It's a lot less expensive to build than a subway or light-rail system, but it brings many of the same benefits by repurposing space that would otherwise be used by private cars. What do you need for BRT? 1) Exclusive bus lanes, physically separated 2) stations that allow easy and rapid boarding, and 3) giving the buses priority at intersections. South-America is the current leader when it comes to BRT, but the rest of the world needs to catch up quickly! Via StreetFilms.
