ITS Enhanced Bus Rapid Transit
This report was sponsored by the Federal Transit Administration and released in 2003. The research effort was prepared to explore the relationships between Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) technologies in order to determine the best set of ITS enhancements to optimize overall BRT performance. Specifically, this research attempts to articulate appropriate sets of ITS technologies for various BRT operational configurations. There are three objectives: research and document ITS technologies applicable to BRT; identify the ITS technologies utilized in current BRT projects; and examine opportunities to enhance specified BRT projects.
