Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a high quality, high capacity bus-based mass transit option for rapidly growing cities. BRT delivers fast, reliable and cost-effective mobility through the provision of segregated lanes, enclosed stations, rapid and frequent operations. BRT fare based on fare collection stationary entry rather than on buses and excellent passenger information systems.
A BRT system provides priority to public transport passengers, but can also greatly improve conditions for mixed traffic by solving the problem of bus stop congestion. Median-aligned busway minimize the risk of delays caused by turning movements and parked vehicles.
BRT infrastructure should be built in a corridor where many public transport users travel and suffer delays due to congestion. Dedicated BRT lanes can increase bus travel speed significantly. In Guangzhou, the bus average speeding during the peak hour increased from 11km/h to 19km/h after BRT.
