Belfast Rapid Transit
Belfast Rapid Transit (BRT) is an innovative and ambitious project that will create a new and dynamic public transport system for Belfast. BRT will provide people with better access to jobs, hospitals, shops, schools, colleges, and entertainment. The BRT service will be customer friendly with a focus on quality.
The BRT system will use high quality rapid transit vehicles similar to a modern tram or light rail type vehicle. These vehicles will provide a modern, comfortable environment for passengers in terms of space, security and on-board information. The BRT system will also incorporate high quality halts with level access to vehicles, real time information systems for easier journey planning and off-vehicle ticketing to speed up the boarding process. The speed, reliability and comfort of the BRT services will provide an attractive alternative to private car use.
The pilot BRT network currently being developed will link East Belfast, West Belfast and Titanic Quarter with and through Belfast city centre (see BRT Route Plan).
