The BRT Standard was developed by IDTP, in collaboration with GIZ and other partners with the objective to create a common definition of Bus Rapid Transit and certify high-quality BRT systems around the world. It also functions as a technical tool to guide and encourage municipalities to consider the key features of the best BRT systems as they move through the design process.
The Technical Committee of The BRT Standard comprises globally-renowned experts on BRT. This committee serves as a consistent source of sound technical advice with respect to BRT and is the basis for establishing the credibility of The BRT Standard. The Technical Committee certifies corridors and recommends revisions to The BRT Standard as needed. Member of the BRT Standard Technical Committee is Manfred Breithaupt, coordinator of the transport section with GIZ.
