The Tri-State Transportation Campaign has a new online "clearinghouse" of information on Bus Rapid Transit.

From the Mobilizing the Region blog:

The clearinghouse explains what bus rapid transit (BRT) is, how itcompares to other modes, how it can be implemented in suburban andurban contexts, and how it can anchor transit-oriented development. Theclearinghouse will continue to be updated.

Earlier this month a new coalition called Communities
United for Transportation Equity
(COMMUTE!) called for expansion of New York's BRT plans, and for electeds to support BRT through congestion pricing. Their effort was punctuated by a visit from Enrique Peñalosa, former mayor of Bogotá, which is home to the TransMilenio system.
