What you see is the South Central Axis BRT which starts at the Front Gate south of Tian'an'men Square, and runs along the South Central Axis Road to Third Ring Road. The second BRT line is going to utilize trolley-bus.

BRT is different from normal buses and more like subways in terms of operation, which is, almost all the stations are on the left side.

How are they different? Do they have their own lanes? Why are they called
"rapid", what makes them fast?

Because the line has central platforms, with buses running on the right side. Like in Bogot.

But at the left of this photo there is a bus with doors on the right side - or on the left side, but parked in the opposiete direction. Someone can explain it?

Because there are not enough "left-door" buses for this line (route), then some other "standard" normal buses are used as supplements instead ...

right, they have their own exclusive lanes; tickets are sold on the platform and buses have low floor (fast boarding), they are much longer than normal buses (hold 200-300 passengers), they have priorities at intersections. All of these features make BRT more like a subway train, with a speed at 20km/hours.

It seems the same in Beijing - RMB 2.

Nice system! For the central platforms, how do people get out of and into the station? Are there tunnels underneath the road? or do they have to walk across the BRT route and the main road?

Each station has escalators to underground pedestrian tunnel which extends to both sides of the street.
