Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a popular mode of sustainable public urban transit given dedicated focus in this timely collection. The effects of BRT are examined in-depth through a range of case studies from cities across six continents, including analysis of BRT planning, implementation, operation, performance and impacts. The contributions from academics and non-academic experts on BRT are framed more broadly within the concept of value and how urban transport investment has and can be valued by and for society.
Glen Weisbrod of EDR Group is a contributing coauthor of Chapter 8, which examines the relative economic impacts and performance of BRT vs LRT. This work reflects the international work of EDR Group in evaluating transit options.
