BRT Webinar nr4: Issues that take place after a BRT system implementation – learning from others experiences

The forth session of BRT webinar “Issues that take place after a BRT system implementation – learning from others experiences”, will be presented by Ulises Navarro, on Tuesday 31th May at 15:00 GMT.

During the first year of operation of a BRT system might arise a series of problems that could have been easily anticipated. Although no system is exactly similar to other and the problems that may arise at the time of implementation may differ from city to city, it might be helpful to learn from other experiences in order to minimize problems. In this presentation we will address operational and other problems that arised during the implementation of BRT systems in Mexico and how they could have been avoided and solved.

Dr. Navarro has been involved in transportation and traffic engineering for thirty years. During those years he has been involved as a consultant in the planning and design of many public transportation projects, at the urban and regional levels. The majority of his clients have been departments, secretariats and ministries of transportation at the municipal, state and federal levels, but also private developers. 

Currently, he is working as the Regional Public Transport Director (for Latin America) of the Institute of Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP), overseen BRT and public transport projects in Latin America.
