About Global BRTData

The BRTData is a Project of Across Latitudes and Cultures – Bus Rapid Transit (ALC-BRT), a Centre of Excellence for Bus Rapid Transit. The platform construction and data collect are the result of a partnership between the ALC-BRT members, the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Latin American Association of Integrated Transport Systems and BRT (SIBRT). Currently, the BRTData is managed and updated by WRI Brasil Sustainable Cities.
