Development of Deployment Strategy for an Integrated BRT System

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) combines the flexibility of traditional bus transit service with higher performance rail transit features. One of the advantages that BRT has over rail involves the possibility for incremental and flexible deployment. This report examines how deployment decisions can be made more easily and in a more integrated way by clarifying the relationships between different BRT elements. The report also looks at how the different planning-level goals of deployment are affected by decisions regarding particular elements. The report presents a system architecture and a prototype visual tool that have been developed which show the relationships between and among common BRT elements and major decision areas.
