Feasibility of Bus Rapid Transit Within the Mid-Atlantic Region
Is bus rapid transit (BRT) a viable transit option in Delaware? Findings of IPA research indicate that a regional BRT system is indeed worthy of further consideration. An assessment of domestic BRT systems and operations reveal substantial progress towards solidifying the position of BRT as a viable transit mode. The strength of the mode lies in its ability to develop incrementally, respond to regional mobility needs, adjust to budget constraints, and its potential to attract choice riders for a relatively low capital cost.
