Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) can play a significant role as part of integrated public transport systems and is gaining support around the world in both developing and developed cities. The promise of BRT is that it can serve as a catalyst for reshaping urban space and restructure public transport, especially in developing cities. Implementation of successful BRT projects face significant challenges, but cities around the world are innovating new ways to make BRT carry large passenger volumes and fit into unique urban contexts. This book highlights the research done by the BRT Centre of Excellence to address the opportunities and challenges of BRT.
