Description
 
Bus rapid transit (BRT) has generated interest around the world to help alleviate the adverse effects of traffic congestion and potentially contribute to economic growth. BRT features can include improvements to infrastructure, technology, and passenger amenities over standard bus service to improve service and attract new riders. The use of federal funding for BRT in the U.S. has increased since 2005, when the Safe Accountable Flexible Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) expanded eligibility for major capital projects under the Fed. Transit Admin.s (FTAs) Capital Investment Grant Program to include corridor-based bus projects. BRT projects can be funded through New, Small, and Very Small Start grants under the Capital Investment Grant Program. This report examines (1) features included in BRT projects funded by the FTA; (2) BRT project performance in terms of ridership and service and how they compare to rail transit projects; (3) how BRT-projects costs differ from rail transit project costs; and (4) the extent to which BRT projects provide economic development and other benefits. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
