2014 Nominees: 8 Nominees From 7 Countries
Lanzhou implemented several sustainable transport measures in 2013. The Lanzhou BRT opened in January, and already carries 150,000 daily passengers. It features a revolutionary new station design, with buses in the same direction stopping on both sides of a platform. This offers roughly the same capacity as that of a traditional offset BRT station, but with half the station length and only around 1m in extra width. Parking reforms, bike sharing, and Transit-oriented development are also featured.
