Bus Rapid Transit

Discussion

Bus rapid transit is a series of features that can be incorporated into a public transport system to make travel by bus easier and faster.

If public transport is quick and convenient, there is more incentive for people to leave their car at home, or not own a car. This saves money and reduces greenhouse emissions.
