The BRTdata.org website provides most robust data to improve mobility and reduce carbon emissions from transit
Across Latitudes and Cultures - Bus Rapid Transit (ALC-BRT) is a Centre of Excellence for Bus Rapid Transit development implemented in Santiago, Chile, and financed by the Volvo Research and Educational Foundations (VREF). This CoE was established in May of 2010 and is working as a consortium of five institutions that include Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Technical University of Lisbon, The University of Sydney and EMBARQ - The WRI Center for Sustainable Transport, including its network of centers of sustainable transport. The main goal of this Centre of Excellence is to develop a new framework for planning, design, financing, implementation and operation of BRT in different urban areas, giving clear guidelines to decision makers on when and how BRT projects can effectively enhance mobility and meet accessibility needs. These guidelines will be a major milestone to change the way decision makers address investment and design plans for configuring urban mobility systems. An essential goal of the ALC-BRT CoE is to identify elements which are transferable between existing and prospective BRT systems and elements that are project site specific.
