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;
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.
