BRT and expanding transit in Beijing

Richard Layman beat me to posting this video, but a Bay Area expat living in Beijing named Luke Mines sent us this video about the opening of the new “5”subway line in Beijing and the rise of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) there.

BRT has been implemented in a limited scale in the U.S., but the sytem(s) in China are much more akin to what we’ve seen in Brazil, Bogota, Colombia, and other South American cities, with separated lanes, dedicated right-of-way, and rapid boarding docks at door level.

Check out the video from Goldmines Film Beijing.
