Researchers, the general public, practitioners, decision makers, public transport operators, journalists and the financing community worldwide are in need of knowing what are the strengths and weaknesses of BRT systems, and the benefits these bring if implemented in innovative and well-thought ways.
Our goal is to provide an understanding of BRT worldwide and the issues that are critical in the successful design and implementation of new projects. We support this task also by hosting and wrapping up significant Transport events we have participated in. They are designed for an audience of researchers and industry professionals and the content ranges from regulatory frameworks to technological aspects of operations and control decisions.
