Bus rapid transit (BRT) systems are found in cities throughout the world. Their operating flexibility and their ability to be built quickly, incrementally, and economicallyunderlie their growing popularity. The systems vary in design, operations, usage, and effectiveness. Collectively, the case studies on BRT provided give a wealth of information on BRT and how it should be plannedand implemented.This report draws on the experiences of 26 urban areas in North America, Australia, Europe, and South America. Most of the BRT systems reviewed are in revenue services, and a few are under construction or development. Information was assembled for each case study on institutional arrangements, system design, operating practices, usage, costs, and benefits. [Editor's note: The link below is to a 1MB PDF document.]
