One of the Federal Transit Administration's (FTA) objectives is to provide local and state officials with the information they need to make informed transportation investment decisions. The 2004 report, Characteristics of Bus Rapid Transit for Decision-Making (CBRT) was prepared to provide transportation planners and decision makers with basic information and data to support the development and evaluation of bus rapid transit concepts as one of many options during alternatives analyses and subsequent project planning. The purpose of the report is to provide the features and attributes of bus rapid transit (BRT), how the elements relate to system performance, and the benefits of implementing BRT systems.
