The City of Guangzhou is seriously considering implementing a Bus Rapid Transit system and have asked for ITDP’s recommendations about the most appropriate initial corridor for such a system.
ITDP has assessed potential BRT corridors and even with the current limited availability of data are able to make firm recommendations about the best initial BRT corridors in Guangzhou.
All of the main corridors in Guangzhou have ample space for BRT implementation, and provided that the BRT system is designed to capture a significant proportion of the existing demand for public transport on the corridor, all of the corridors analysed can implement a BRT system without adversely affecting – and even in several locations improving – the flow of general traffic. In practical terms this means that there are no important disbenefits; it is just a matter of choosing the corridors with the most benefits.
