Introduction

Bus rapid transit (BRT) has emerged as a favorable alternative to rail transit. BRT runs in dedicated lanes, has separated stations that are more robust than traditional bus stops, and allows off-board fare payment. Transit planners view BRT as a way to provide comparable service to heavy or light rail while witnessing considerable capital cost savings.
