Advisory Board

The Advisory Board will be a group of collaborators of the CoE, that will include selected political figures (i.e. political champions) and BRT practitioners who can discuss the key problems that motivate the research of the CoE. The role of the BRT Advisory Board is to bring testimony of BRT expectations and challenges in real cases, and help us elaborating syntheses of the lessons from those cases, thus making it a fundamental link to real world problems.

In order to fulfill this mission, the BRT Advisory Board will be a diverse group with members selected from different continents and types of realities, covering cities which have already implemented (with greater or smaller success) BRT experiences, and cities that are engaged in the planning that leads to its implementation and, last but not least, selected cities which have not spoken publicly about doing it but seem to have good potential for adoption of BRT solutions.
