  • 3. Our Vision BRT systems are a feasible instrument to make metropolitan areas more sustainable from the economic, financial, social, political, technical and environmental perspectives, making them more attractive places to live, work and visit. We are not a BRT Advocacy agency. Instead, we provide clear guidelines on when and how BRT projects can effectively enhance mobility and meet accessibility needs.
  • 4. Our Main Objective Develop a new framework for the planning, design, financing, implementation and operation of BRT.
  • 5. A BRT Observatory: gather, interpret and present BRT data. Major Outcomes
  • 6. BRT Observatory
  • 7. A BRT Observatory: A BRT Laboratory: gather, interpret and present BRT data. develop in-depth understanding of the factors and relations underlying system performance, developing or improving analytical methods and their supporting instruments. Major Outcomes
  • 8. BRT Laboratory LS1) Structured assessment of BRT performance LS2) Exploring the complexity of policy design LS3) From vision to promise to delivery LT2) Typology and analysis of business plans, contracts and incentives for BRT and urban mobility systems. LT3) Determine key elements of higher satisfaction for users and authorities LT5) Modeling reliability, cost, travel times, safety, comfort and other relevant variables of modal choice LO1) Explore innovative ways to manage and control BRT services O5) Create and provide a benchmark report O6) Start case studies.
  • 9. A BRT Observatory: A BRT Laboratory: A BRT Educational program: gather, interpret and present BRT data. develop in-depth understanding of the factors and relations underlying system performance, developing or improving analytical methods and their supporting instruments. deploy the knowledge gained supporting teaching, education and training for regular and long-life learning.
