Transforming Cities with Bus Rapid Transit - How to integrate BRT? a report produced by UITP, BRT+ and supported by VREF

"Transforming Cities with Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Systems – How to integrate BRT?" was launched in June 2019 at the UITP Global Public Transport Summit in Stockholm, Sweden and is a co-production between UITP, the International Association of Public Transport, the BRT+ Centre of Excellence, and VREF.

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems emerged in Latin America as an innovation that could transform cities and the way people move. While they constitute a first step towards integrated public transport networks (IPTN) and could be a catalyst for urban development, they should not be treated in isolation as a mere substitute for rail infrastructure where public funds are scarce.

This report argues that a systemic approach acknowledges that BRT impacts and performance depend on local conditions. It draws on the global knowledge of the BRT + Centre of Excellence to pay particular attention to Africa through the cases of Cape Town and Dakar.
