The choices made in the planning and design of a BRT or Busway corridor
(e.g. counterflow lanes, speed management, location of pedestrian
crossings) can have a great impact on the system's safety performance. This
webinar examines in detail the relative safety performance of typical BRT
design features, using findings from crash frequency models and qualitative
observations from road safety inspections. We illustrate our findings
through several case studies, including Metrobus (Mexico City), Metrobus
(Istanbul), and TransOeste (Rio de Janeiro) and we discuss the relationship
between safety and operational performance.
Hope you can join us!
