BRT is "Better Rapid Transit"
BRT Policy Center -- Transportation Choices for the 21st Century
Welcome to our database on innovative bus projects around the world.  This database is available for your use free of charge.  It was made possible by a generous grant from the Blue Moon Fund.

We have included projects of various types in the database.  Most are not full-featured BRT, but rather employ certain components of BRT or are planning to upgrade to full-BRT in the future.  For a more detailed description of full-featured BRT, please click here

This database is a beta version.  We have attempted to present as much information as possible.  Given the fast growth of BRT, however, we view this database as a work in progress.
