bus rapid transit (BRT), intelligent transportation systems (ITS)


 ITS is an umbrella term used to describe a variety of technologies, treatments and strategies that allow improvements to the flow of transit systems. In many cases, insertion of ITS types of technologies provide transit travel improvements with a minimal of capital investment.
