Welcome to BRTuk

Scene showing an example of BRT

BRT is a high profile rapid transit mode that combines the speed, image and permanence of light rail with the cost and flexibility of bus. BRTuk seeks to raise the profile of, and develop a centre of excellence in, bus rapid transit.

BRTuk does not seek to promote bus-based rapid transit above all other modes. BRTuk seeks to enhance understanding of bus rapid transit and what it can do, and allow a fair and informed comparison against other modes.

BRTuk is an association dedicated to the sharing of information about evolving bus based rubber tyred rapid transit technology.

This website explains the objectives of BRTuk, provides details of membership together with a membership application form and gives links to other websites relevant to BRT. The website also provides a members-only area giving data sources to assist promoters and operators of BRT systems.

Cambridgeshire Busway user research:

As presented at the BRTuk Annual Conference in 2012, Cambridgeshire County Council and Atkins have jointly funded research examining the usage of the Busway. This research, based on more than 800 user interviews, shows that the Busway has been very successful in delivering improved access to work and education, mode transfer from car and increased bus usage by higher income groups. More details can be found in the full report which can be downloaded here.
