This effort aimed to foster a dialogue among peers at transportation and planning agencies about their experiences with promoting public transit and, specifically, challenges faced related to Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) projects and the solutions developed in response.
Agencies from many large cities around the United States participated in three peer-to-peer exchanges in New York City, Los Angeles, and Cleveland. The facilitated discussions were structured to address the barriers to BRT implementation on the streets of dense and/or highly-congested large urban centers with three prevailing themes: Network, Route, and Street Design; Traffic Operations; and Building Political, Interagency, and Stakeholder Support.
Deployment of transit signal priority reduced bus delays at signalized intersections by between 33 and 39 percent for LA Metro.
