Definition

Bus rapid transit (BRT, BRTS) is a bus-based mass transit system. A true BRT system generally has specialized design, services and infrastructure to improve system quality and remove the typical causes of bus delay. Sometimes described as a surface subway, BRT aims to combine the capacity and speed of a light rail or metro system with the flexibility, cost and simplicity of a bus system. (Wikipedia)
