8About the Guide

The Bus Rapid Transit Planning Guide is the most comprehensive resource for planning a BRT system, beginning with project preparation all the way through to implementation. It is a huge effort by the Institute of Transportation and Development Policy, and dozens of authors and reviewers.

This [work in progress] volume focuses on the goals and functionality of the Online edition on the BRT Planning Guide, a project that, essentially, aims to make the guide more accessible and constantly up-to-date:

  • the guide is now available online in a website format that is easy to navigate
  • PDFs are also available to those that need to print them
  • the online publication of updates is automatic
  • the entire history of the guide is with Git
  • revisions and contributions are easier with GitHub
