A report commissioned by the National Bus Rapid Transit Institute, and conducted by The Mission Group in San Diego, evaluates the issue of network planning for Bus Rapid Transit. The report compares the “Light Rail Lite” model of BRT implementation, which is predominant in the United States, with the “Quickway” model, which has been shown to be highly successful in Ottawa, Canada and Brisbane, Australia.
