Bus Rapid Transit Planning

PATH has been working on various issues related to the planning and technologies for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT). In a recent effort, researchers are focusing on developing best practices specifically for BRT planning. Policies, practice, knowledge and experience related to how practice traffic management and transit operation agencies are using to measure the impacts and benefits of BRT in the initial BRT planning stage are gathered and analyzed. Eventually, the information will be used to derive a set of BRT planning tools to aid traffic and transit agencies initial BRT analysis and to facilitate the decision making process related to developing a BRT program.
