      Transmilenio Bus Rapid Transit

      Interesting video on Bogota's mass transit solution.
      Notable points - small neighborhood feeder buses (free) transfer
      passengers to stations (collect fares), where they transfer to large
      articulated buses that travel in reserved lanes between major stations.
      In addition, several stations have secure bicycle storage facilities
      (free). They estimate that every 30 bikers saves them one trip of a
      feeder bus.

      Cities that are considering multimodal transit might benefit from a
      similar strategy.
