BRT On the Way to Jordan

A new bus rapid transit project has begun construction in Amman, Jordan -- a first for the country.

Construction is expected to finish by the end of the year.

"Construction is underway on a new Bus Rapid Transit system in central Amman. Planners believe that the $170 million project, which is expected to be completed within a year, will radically change the way people get around the city.

In the first stage of the project, three BRT line are slated to be built through the center of the city, with a combined length of 32 kilometers. High-capacity buses, carrying over 120 passengers, will run along these routes through segregated lanes, arriving every three minutes. "
