Transforming Cities with Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Systems: How to Integrate BRT?The joint UITP, Volvo Research and Education Foundations and CoE BRT+ report on the lessons learned from the work of both organisations to develop a report oriented towards decision makers. The content goes as far as to present lessons that are transferrable to other contexts and derive recommendations from governance and planning to operational aspects.
The key elements will deal with the implementation of BRT projects; namely the planning and funding of the system as well as operational and maintenance concerns. Yet, the process will be approached from a strategic perspective considering the different phases of the development of an integrated PT system and, then, illustrating “good BRT practices”. The poster will illustrate the findings of the report.
