The Growing Popularity of Bus Rapid Transit

The Atlantic Cities has a piece on the growing popularity of bus rapid transit (BRT), both in the developing world and more recently cash-strapped transit authorities in the US.  When it’s done right, it’s been called a “surface subway” or “rail on rubber”.  Done half-assed, it’s just another bus line.  Let’s hope we get it right with FasTracks on US 36.

    why would it be called ‘surface subway’? why not ‘light rail but a bus’?

    i.e. what would make a bus more like ‘surface subway’ than ‘surface rail’?
