Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a high-quality bus-based transit system that delivers fast, comfortable, and cost-effective services at metro-level capacities. The BRT Standard evaluates BRT corridors based on a wide range of metrics to establish a common definition of BRT through the BRT Basics, and recognizes particularly high-quality corridors with either Bronze, Silver, or Gold rankings. The map below shows all BRT systems with verified BRT Standard scores.
