Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a high-quality bus-based transit system that delivers fast, comfortable and cost effective urban mobility through the provision of segregated right-of-way infrastructure, rapid and frequent operations.
The system allows a high level of predictability of journey time compared to the conventional buses. It normally runs on an off-board fare collection system with platform-level boarding (which reduces boarding and alighting delays).
The transit system also utilises high-capacity buses with prominent brands, quality stations, and more importantly, it allows priority on intersections. This system is highly comfortable, environmentally friendly and cost-effective to commuters.
The BRT system has been found to mirror the performance and amenity characteristics of a modern rail transit system. It also costs four to 20 times less than trams or LRT system and 10 to 100 times less than metro systems.
Planet Projects Limited has been in the forefront of the promotion of Bus Rapid Transit in African cities, having worked on the premier BRT project in Africa – The Lagos BRT Lite and the Oshodi-Abule-Egba Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project, which is currently under construction.
Our services cover the whole spectrum of works from studies, planning, engineering designs, construction of infrastructure (dedicated lanes, bus stations, bus depots, bus terminals, etc.) and also Operations and Maintenance (O&M).
We, therefore have the requisite experience to develop BRT system across Africa.
We currently play a vital role in the design, engineering and construction of the 2nd Bus Rapid Transit Scheme in Nigeria; that is, Oshodi-Abule-Egba BRT, in Lagos State, which is being developed to convey over 200,000 commuters on a daily basis.
Our areas of service include:
- Construction and Engineering
- Feasibility Studies
- Route Planning and Management
- Ticketing and Fare Collection
- Conceptual Engineering Design
- Operations and Maintenance (O&M)
We offer timely and cost-friendly services to our clients in both private and public sectors of the economy.
Significant project experience is as follows:
- Ikorodu-CMS Bus Rapid Transit Scheme
- Oshodi-Abule-Egba Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project
- Lekki BRT Feasibility Study
