Best Practice in National Support for Urban Transportation, Part 2: Growing Rapid Transit Infrastructure — Funding, Financing, and Capacity

Part 1 of "Best Practice in National Support for Urban Transportation" examined bus rapid transit networks in nine countries and compared their ratio of rapid transit per resident (RTR). In this report the focus is on funding and financing details for 123 urban rapid transport projects from the nine countries (Brazil, China, Colombia, France, India, Indonesia, Mexico, South Africa, and United States). It also looks at annual change in RTR from 2000 to 2014 to determine which countries are the most successful at developing their rapid transit relative to their urban populations.
