Swedish Guidelines for Regional Bus Rapid TransitAn adaption of BRT to a regional level, connecting urban areas and the semirural areas in-between, has potential to become an affordable alternative for high-quality regional public transport. Guidelines have been introduced in Sweden, and implementation has begun in Skåne County. The idea is that this concept will offer an alternative to rail for high-quality public transport in semirural areas.
