Abstract:

The BRT Standard is an evaluation tool for BRT corridors based on international best practices. It is also the centerpiece of a global effort by leaders in bus rapid transit design to establish a common definition of BRT and to ensure that BRT corridors more uniformly deliver world-class passenger experiences, significant economic benefits, and positive environmental impacts.

The Standard functions as a planning tool, a scoring system, and a means of achieving a common definition of BRT. By defining the essential elements of BRT, it provides a framework for system designers, decision makers, and the sustainable-transport community to identify and implement high-quality BRT corridors. The BRT Standard celebrates cities that are leading the way in BRT excellence and offers best practice-based guidance to those planning a system.
