      What: Join the Mineta Transportation Institute for "Bus In the Fast Lane," a
      free forum to examine bus rapid transit, or BRT. This new form of urban

      generating some controversy in other corridors where it is being planned.
      Come hear a lively discussion of the pros and cons of BRT, and learn how the
      Bay Area's system compares to others in the nation.
