  2. Public Transit in Mexico Leon, Guanajuato MX ______________________________________________ OPTIBUS Leon was the first city in Mexico to create a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system. Optibus is nicknamed "La Oruga" by locals because the articulated buses look like big green Caterpillars. This is one of their newest buses.
  3. It's exciting to be looking at the routing for the North Crosstown BRT, something that's been definitely needed to provide better E-W connections along 16th Avenue. I think this route would provide a frequent link between a couple of hospitals (major employment centres), help with the development in University District in west campus, and also spur some development for more high density developments along 16th Avenue. Only issues I see with the route is the lack of separated lanes or traffic priority at major intersections such as Centre Street, Edmonton Trail and 19th Street NE which hurts re
  4. RFTA in Aspen Colorado is close to unveiling its new BRT service--the first rural BRT service in the US (and maybe anywhere) The buses will be Gillig BRT CNG. See one on this video: (Pretty rare for a Gillig BRT bus to actually be on a BRT line!)

Two open houses were held this week regarding phase 2 and presentation materials can be found here: Phase 2 From the presentation, it looks like construction of phase 2 is also set to start in 2017 and into 2018 and is likely to be complete at the same tim
  6. "When you look at the size of Honolulu (and) you look at the transportation problem they're seeking to solve, BRT is almost certainly a better investment," Taylor said Friday in a telephone interview with KITV4. For Taylor, whose research examines travel behavior, transportation finance, as well as politics and planning, the superiority of BRT boils down to the amount of ridership Honolulu's rail project is expected to draw. According to the rail project's final environmental impact statement, the 20-mile, elevated system from East Kapolei to the Ala Moana Shopping Center will see 116,300 tr
  7. http://blogs.wsj.com/indiarealtime/2012/10/19/court-hails-bus-says-yes-to-brt/ The court concluded that the “bitter” medicine of improving public transport was the only long-term solution to Delhi’s traffic woes. “There being no scope to expand the width of the existing roads and the population of Delhi continuously in the increase, we see no escape from the fact that the citizens of Delhi have to, one day or the other, use public transport,” the bench said.
