Penalosa Critical of Gujarat BRT

Enrique Penalosa, famed as the "Father of Bus Rapid Transit," pays a visit to the Ahmedabad BRTS in Gujarat, India. Penalosa was positive, but doesn't think it goes far enough in catering to pedestrians over cars.

From DNA India:

"Is this the newly constructed bus station? It looks 15 years old. The pedestrian space is pathetic. This was the first reaction of Enrique Penalosa, the father of the Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) and former mayor of Bogota, when he took a ride on the BRTS service on Saturday morning. Penalosa did not like the idea of having parking strips along the BRTS lane, saying that the space could have been better utilised as pedestrian space and for cycle tracks."
