Not that there is much built up around there, but the median stations are fantastically efficient in terms of depositing people to locations right at the route- oh and not to mention beautifully rain proof and accessible - you can make out the cross walk that intersects the station ramp (ramp = wheel chair accessible).


One day, down the road, the very same stations might even be adapted for another type of vehicle...

you have seen the rea vaya stations right? - I think I prefer them to these..

I prefer these. They offer full cover, and are a little less artsy so they will age well.
They're very similar though since there was close collaboration with Joburg.

I think these stations though are also getting artworks

With dedicated lanes.

The project is NOT here to replace rail, but for rail to act as the backbone, the BRT system to act as the connector where rail is not in place.

The system is "integrated" because its beyond buses and trains, and includes cycle lanes along each trunk route, along with pedestrian lanes.

Great! Extremely good taste and refinement in the stations/stops. And the busses are Brazilian!

The system is very good! It's working well, and the ridership is substantial. They only have to expand it a lot more to have a big impact on city, which will be done in the near future.
