What is BRT?
The goal of a BRT system is to provide high quality transit service that provides similar benefits to rail transit, such as improved speed and reliability, but at a much lower implementation cost.
 
Why create a BRT system in El Paso? 
Communities across the nation are turning to rapid transit to bring modern bus services to their residents. Some of the potential benefits are:
  • Creating another mode of transportation
  • Improving service quality and rider experience
  • Faster and more convenient than traditional buses
  • Alleviating traffic congestion
  • Protecting the environment
  • Encouraging economic development opportunities
