BRT means Bus Rapid Transit. Dedicated busways have enabled BRT to offer higher-speed and higher-frequency services compared with a fixed-route bus.

It has been sustainable transportation which contributes to revival of affected areas, ensuring rapidity and punctuality by utilizing extra railway tracks, enhancing service frequency and setting routes based on the stages of community planning.
