Bus rapid transit

Our bus rapid transit (BRT) experts employ bespoke technologies and techniques aimed at providing a step change in the quality of bus service provision – to provide a faster, more reliable and seamless experience. BRT schemes are increasingly viewed as a vital part of the transport tool kit, offering future-focused solutions for easing congestion, improving accessibility, and enhancing social inclusion in towns and cities.

Features of BRT systems can range from network-wide initiatives to junction priority and corridor specific enhancements – including dedicated track and guidance. Guidance provided can include mechanical (either kerb or slot guidance), electrical or optical guidance systems. Key attributes include:

  • Reliable and rapid journey times
  • Integrated design of infrastructure and vehicles for comfort, quality and improved access
  • Silent, high performance and low/no emission at source propulsion including diesel electric hybrid, fuel cells and trolley bus traction
  • Close tolerance docking allowing passengers to board and leave buses without a large step
  • Reliable real time information advising waiting times to the next bus
  • Readily identifiable and visible product enhancing the quality of the public transport offering
