BRT can be a cost effective alternative to rail transit.

Successful BRT replicates the essentials of a light rail system—high-quality vehicles, fixed stations, and dedicated or exclusive guideways for the entirety of the system. Well-designed BRT systems can support TOD around stations. BRT systems that include travel lanes shared with automobiles or that rely on signal prioritization or jump lanes will not achieve full ridership potential.
