Bus Rapid Transit (BRT).

The flexible traffic concept.

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a high-quality bus-based transit system that delivers fast, comfortable, and cost-effective mobility services. BRT achieves this thanks to dedicated bus lanes, a fast and high-frequency service and a focus on marketing and customer service.*

Since the first system entered service in the city of Curitiba, Brazil, in 1974, Bus Rapid Transit has enjoyed increasing success worldwide. For BRT there are no standard solutions. Quite on the contrary, one of the essential success factors of the system is its ability to adapt flexibly to the specific conditions of each individual city. Today BRT systems are operated on all the continents and in the most diverse cities – from mega-cities like Istanbul, Rio de Janeiro and Mexico City to smaller European cities like Strasbourg and Nantes in France.

At Mercedes-Benz we are firmly convinced of the benefits offered by BRT as an attractive, cost-efficient transit system for cities all around the world. We want to tell everybody about all the success stories and the advantages of the existing BRT systems in order to increase the popularity of BRT as a particularly economically-efficient mode of transport.

Together with diverse partners and in close cooperation with all concerned, our BRT team of experts accompany city authorities for the development and planning of their BRT systems.

With our broad product portfolio, our experience in the maintenance and after-sales sectors, as well as our customised financing conditions, our integrated approach meets the expectations of our customers.
