The BRT Standard is an evaluation tool for world-class bus rapid transit (BRT) 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 ensure that BRT systems more uniformly deliver world-class passenger experiences, significant economic benefits, and positive environmental impacts.
Our Director was invited to be part of the BRT Standard Technical Committee. Juan Carlos considers this invitation a great honor and a recognition by ITDP of the quality of the work coming from our Centre of Excellence in BRT.
The BRT Standard Technical Committee:
The Technical Committee of The BRT Standard comprises globally renowned experts on BRT. This committee serves as a consistent source of sound technical advice with respect to BRT and is the basis for establishing the credibility of The BRT Standard. The Technical Committee certifies corridors and recommends revisions to The Standard as needed. The corridors receive a score that yields them either a Gold, Silver, Bronze or Basic standard BRT qualification
