8 Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) High demand corridors with metro- type services with buses. In many cases they are complemented with feeder services. Usually they coexist with conventional systems, generally without regulation, that serves long routes from one end of the city to the other end of the city. Integrated Transport Systems (ITS) Transit system with at least fare integration (unified fare collection and smart card) at city level. Integrated transit operation with trunk-feeder routes, complemented with walking and bike, provides services from door to door. ITS are intermodal systems that may integrate BRT, metros and other subsystems. Example: TransMilenio, Bogotá Example: RIT Curitiba SIBRT’s Basic Definitions of BRT and ITS

9 Foto: Luis Antonio Lindau/ EMBARQ Brasil Two ways towards the Full ITS 1.In most of the non Brazilian Latin America, cities started with BRT corridors, then built BRT networks, and are now evolving to FULL Integrated Transport Systems. 2.In Brazil and Chile cities started with Integrated Transport Systems, then built BRT to optimize high demand corridors evolving to FULL Integrated Transport Systems

12 Public Policy Vision of a Mobility which structures a Sustainable City Political Will, Leadership and Alliances Laws and Regulations focused on City and Mobility Financing to ensure Quality of Service Modern corporatization of the bus service: public and private cooperation, and strong technical and organizational development The Modernization Challenges Development of human capital and technical capabilities

13 In the next 10-15 years, 242 Latin American Cities with more than 250 thousands inhabitants (around 370 millions total), will demand: US$ 27 billion in public investment in infrastructure, in order to implement 5,400 kilometers of BRT additional corridors. US$ 70 billion in private investment for the transit fleet renewal. Closing the Investment Gap
