Olympic transport legacies : Rio de Janeiro’s Bus Rapid Transit System / Eva Kassens-Noor... [et al.]

Kassens-Noor, Eva

It argues that because of the low cost, speed of implementation, best-practice knowledge, existing political coalitions, ease of land acquisition, and flexibility in planning, BRTs emerged as the dominant Olympic transport solution.
