, ABSTRACT: With the population ever-increasing, gas prices on an upward climb, and citizens tightening their belts due to the current economic downturn, this is the most opportune time to look at alternative types of public transportation, with Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) being at the forefront. The implementation of BRT is a process that must be seriously scrutinized and thoughtfully planned out, but when applicable under certain conditions, the cost-benefit analysis favors BRT over any other form of mass public transit. This thesis project aims to develop the necessary pre-existing conditions and policies a municipality must have in place prior to implementation of a BRT system. These guidelines ensure that the BRT system will run efficiently, maintain a purpose, and will ensure the system can sustain itself once it is implemented into the existing transportation network. Several thriving BRT models will be examined and the principles they used will be applied to two existing cities that are proposing BRT within the confines of their existing transit systems.
