From Platforma Urbana
Cities in Focus: Curitiba, Brazil

Video: Cities in Focus, Curitiba, Brazil | Plataforma Urbana. Narration and interviews are in Portuguese. Terrific pictures of the day to day working of Curitiba's famous, innovative Bus Rapid Transit. This from Taras Grescoe's Straphanger: Savings Our Cities and Ourselves From the Automobile: "The Transitway system in Ottawa, which has been running since 1983, is an influential early attempt at BRT..." Plans are in place to convert it to light rail.
