Mercedes-Benz Buses Model Overview


Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)

Growing cities, an increase in individual transport and the desire for fast, convenient transportation options are making the limits between existing public transport systems clearer in many places. That’s one reason why many large cities are expanding their local public transport and opting for the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) as a solution. BRT systems are characterised by the followingfactors:

  • Separate bus lanes and priorisation over other means of transport
  • Barrier-free access via bus-stop platforms
  • Vehicles optimised in terms of size and design
  • Ticket purchase and access control outside the vehicle
  • Integration with all kinds of means of transport
  • Regulation via intelligent transport systems (ITS)
  • Organisation of the system into main lines and feeder lines
  • Unmistakable marketing
Implementation of such BRT systems is characterised in general by high complexity due to the numerous components that bear influence on the planning process, e.g. design of the bus stops, bus lanes, vehicle configuration, etc.  Because of our commitment to sustainable development, we – Daimler Buses – support city authorities worldwide in the development of environmentally-compatible solutions for local public transport. Our experts accompany the decision-makers providing support at all stages of the process, starting with the planning and all the way to implementation in matters such as e.g. traffic planning, operation, financing andafter-sales.
