This Planning Guide first provides an overview of the BRT concept, including its definition and historical development and proceeds to give a step-by-step description of the BRT planning process. This Guide encompasses six major components in BRT planning: I. Project preparation; II. Operational design; III. Physical design; IV. Integration; V. Business plan; and VI. Evaluation and implementation. Municipal planning professionals and planning consultants will particularly benefit from the step-by-step documentation of the BRT development process.
