Hi, Our BRT is called TransMilenio (I took this pics last week -12 pics- ). The best of TransMilenio is the urban renewal, and new urban infraestructure (pedestrian bridges, bricks sidewalk, small parks, etc).

-----

Today I had some free time, and I took about 200 photos on the street level of Bogotá's traditional city center (I will post according to the photographed areas )

Greetings.

Very interesting. Rea Vaya will be a great contribution to Johannesburg transportation problems, and a excellent urbanism addition. (this is the best aspect of the BRT's, urban renewal). Can you give me a link in SSC with more information?

Thank you!. Soon i will create a thread with more detail in latinscrapers (I took how inspiration your excelent thread).

Of course that it will take more photos of the city center/downtown (this includes pictures on the street level of the international center, popular comercial zones, other areas that are very elegant and beautiful, and some suprises). The problem is that I have very little time, but I promise I'll take those photos soon

A little preview :





Street level:







Cultural center:



Random streets:









A lovely pic:

Well, I expected more comments, to note that almost nobody is interested in knowing more about Bogotá. (My goal with this thread in this forum is change the erroneous perception of Colombia and its capital, but I see it is useless) .

This thread serves as experience for me not publish my own pictures or make my own thread of any Colombian cities in the international forum. (And then follows with a mistaken image of what is Colombia. With this disinterest, unfortunately people continue to believe that Colombia is a country with deaths and cocaine in every corner and think that our cities are similar to a small town in sub-Saharan Africa )

Don't quit!

Good posts. I read with interest. Bogota seems to be an attractive city. Don't think because people don't post, that they are not interested. Your kind of photographs are what keep me coming back.
