The objective of this cooperative agreement is to support the efforts of the University of South Florida to continue the operation and administration of the National Bus Rapid Transit Institute. The Institute will continue to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and innovation for increasing the speed, efficiency, and reliability of high capacity bus service through the implementation of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems in the United States. Other functions of the Institute include maintenance of BRT website portal, quarterly newsletter, BRT Peer-to-Peer Program, clearinghouse, U.S. and international scanning tours. The National Bus Rapid Transit Institute was created in January 2001 at the University of South Florida's Center for Urban Transportation Research with the charge of creating a national program for training, technical assistance, research, innovation, and evaluation of existing and proposed BRT projects.
