NTI Characteristics and Planning of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Course, Seattle, WA
The National Transit Institute (NTI) is presenting the Characteristics and Planning of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) course in Seattle, Washington on February 25-26, 2009. This free course ($450 for consultants & contractors) is aimed at planners, engineers, and others involved in the transportation planning and decision-making process.
Concerns over urban mobility, limited public financial resources, and the costs of rail transit have prompted many transit agencies to re-examine existing technologies and to embrace creative ways of improving service quality in a cost-effective manner. This course provides an overview of the FTA document “Characteristics of Bus Rapid Transit for Decision-Making” supplemented with case study analysis and hands-on practice in exploring bus rapid transit alternatives.
