Bus Rapid Transit
Transdev has considerable expertise in Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) projects which are bridging the gap between tram schemes and conventional bus services.
Through dedicated bus lanes and adapted road layouts, intelligent priorities at traffic lights, optional vehicle guidance (optical or mechanical) and seamless integration with the multi-modal system, BRT is the ideal solution for passengers seeking reliable, high-quality service.
Transdev expertise covers project engineering, transportation system supervision, urban
integration and commercial management. Drawing on a wealth of experience acquired in Rouen, Nantes, Bogotá or Paris, the company is ready to share this knowledge with public authorities, looking to jointly develop customized BRT solutions able to adapt and stand the test of time.
