oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Lagos goes 'Lite' with BRT
Lagos, the commercial capital of Nigeria, recently became the first city in Africa to implement a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system. Termed a "BRT Lite" because of its more limited scope and design standards compared with full-specification BRTs (such as the touchstone, Bogota's TransMilenio), the Lagos system provides an opportunity for South Africans involved in planning and deploying BRT systems to take note of what has worked (and what has not) in African conditions. Key characteristics of the system are described here.
