BRT Featured in Journal of Public Transportation

At our last meeting, Roy Nakadegawa circulated the most recent issue of the Journal of Public Transportation (Vol. 9, No. 3), which focuses entirely on BRT. To view articles go to

One important article states that BRT, more than a "no build" option and more than light rail, has the potential to reduce CO2 emissions.

The information in the article referred to in this post ("The Potential for BRT to Reduce Transportation-Related CO2
Emissions") should be very helpful in convincing Berkeley voters to support BRT. It can be downloaded from: www.nctr.usf.edu/jpt/pdf/
JPT%209-3S%20Vincent.pdf

On page 227 of the article there is a chart (Figure 2) summarizing CO2 emissions per passenger mile for each of the transportation modes. If anyone can reproduce it and
post it online as a stand alone item, and/or in flyer form (or can tell me how to do it), please do so. It's important evidence to use
in making the case for BRT.

I have prepared a flyer that includes this chart in PDF format, and it will be available from the web site.
