      Bus Rapid Transit Planning course – Training Course
      11th December, 2006. Mercure Hotel, Yogyakarta

      Dear all

      Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is an innovative approach to solve the problems of
      public transport in the developing cities. Cities such as Curitiba, Bogotá
      and Jakarta have largely benefited by implementing BRT. The whole BRT system
      would be worthless if there is no good planning involved.

      With our experience in BRT planning and implementation, GTZ-SUTP, will be
      offering a training course on Bus Rapid Transit Planning. The course will
      describe the key components of a BRT system and give basic tools for
      policymakers and technical staff of municipalities to start developing a
      successful and high-impact system in their cities. The main objective of
      this training course is to introduce participants to the features of BRT and
      how it can be applied in their city.

      The course will explain the criteria of demand analysis, corridor selection,
      operational plan, customer service plan, infrastructure, modal integration,
      technology, business and financing of a BRT system. It will also describe
      the social, environmental and economic impacts of a BRT system. The course
      will engage participants in exercises for their cities regarding Bus Rapid
      Transit and then evaluate the potential application of a BRT system in each
