TRB's Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Report Bus Rapid Transit, Volume 2: Implementation Guidelines discusses the main components of bus rapid transit (BRT) and describes BRT concepts, planning considerations, key issues, the system development process, desirable conditions for BRT, and general planning principles. It also provides an overview of system types.

    Building Type Basics for Transit Facilities is a nuts-and-bolts guide to all the design considerations for a diverse variety of transit facilities–from predesign research to operations and by: • Bus Rapid Transit is a new and accelerating trend in large cities of the Americas. BRT planning has started in other Continents. • The usually given objectives for BRT include: – BRT is independent from growing traffic congestion – Bus reform and modern management result in .

    these Transit-Oriented Communities Design Guidelines provide a more detailed resource for municipalities and other stakeholders involved in community planning processes across the region. As experience is gained with implementing the Design Guidelines, and as new best practices emerge, this document will be reviewed and updated accordingly. These guidelines are based on a review of relevant AASHTO, TRB, and ITE documents, as well as design reports provided by various transit agencies. They are designed for use by public agencies, practitioners, and developers in need of basic information about planning, locating, sizing, designing, and implementing transit facilities along roadways.
