Global BRTData


About Global BRTData

The BRTData gathers information on bus priority systems in cities around the world. The platform is source of research for academics, journalists, students and municipal technicians, as well as provides technical background for decision making regarding public transport.

The data presented contemplate BRT systems (Bus Rapid Transit - median-aligned and segregated bus lanes, pre-board fare collection, and platform-level boarding) and bus priority systems: cities with dedicated bus lanes, but without some of the elements of a BRT. The website allows the user to know the systems and corridors of each city, compare indicators and generate graphs.

The BRTData was developed by BRT+ CoE, a Center of Excellence in BRT, and by WRI, with collaboration of the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP). The platform is monthly updated with reliable data and verified by WRI Brasil Ross Center for Sustainable Cities.
