Bus Rapid Transit Technical Support

The objective of this project is to provide technical and general program support for the FTA Bus Rapid Transit Demonstration Program--promoting the demonstration of fast bus service in selected American cities across the United States. This project provides for a range of professional services to support the implementation, operation, and evaluation of the ten national demonstration sites initially selected to participate in the FTA Bus Rapid Transit Demonstration Program, and other BRT Consortium projects that developed from cities not initially selected as a BRT demonstration site. To do this and to gain maximum benefit in terms of transferable knowledge and experience gained from these demonstration projects, contractor expertise and services are needed. These services include: specialized, onsite technical assistance, and evaluation and dissemination of technical, financial, and operational program information, useful to agencies considering the implementation of this flexible form of rapid transit. In 1999, the FTA embarked on the National BRT Demonstration Program to research, demonstrate, and deploy efficient fast bus service in American cities. Ten national demonstration cities/sites were originally and competitively selected to participate in the program and incorporated into the BRT Consortium (now replaced by the National Bus Rapid Transit Institute).
