In the Fall of 2013, graduate students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile collaborated on the design of bus rapid transit (BRT) corridors. Working in cross-disciplinary teams of architects, designers, engineers, and planners, we sought to expand thinking about BRT, considering its potential not only as a mode of transportation, but also as a mechanism for driving innovations in urban design, development, and governance.

This site summarizes the highlights of our proposals for Boston and Santiago.

[Update] New reports on BRT and TOD in Boston have been released since this workshop.  See bostonbrt.org, produced by the Greater Boston BRT Study Group, and tstation.info, produced by MAPC and the Dukakis Center.

In Santiago, the Nueva Alameda Providencia corridor is moving forward with an international design competition.
