WestStart-CALSTART Advanced Transit

As an increasing number of transit properties see the potential for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) to meet transit demand in a cost effective manner, and increase system ridership. Transit agencies need better information and tools to evaluate BRT as a potential transit solution. This project supports the efforts of CALSTART to work with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to support the BRT Initiative in three areas: BRT Operations Systems Cost Analysis and Vehicle Partnering, BRT Program Development and Facilitation and Market Research, and BRT Information and Dissemination.
