  •  BRT can be a bridge (0+ / 0-)

    for areas/corridors where there might not be quite enough usage to have a full-fledged light rail built, or where construction might not be feasible due to space limitations. Our local transit system (VTA) has been experimenting with BRT along one busy corridor and is considering expanding it to at least one other.

    Yeah, buses are not quite as cache as light rail, but they're a lot more flexible when conditions change.

    (Disclaimer: my spouse is a bus driver for said transit system.)
