Under the patronage of His Excellency Samir Al Rifa'i, the placement of the cornerstone for the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system was held today


did you know?
Amman BRT is expected to reduce the distance traveled using private vehicles by 85 million kilometers per year and the distance traveled using taxi by 12 million kilometers per year.

Each BRT bus can accommodate up to 150 passengers or equivalent to about 110 private vehicles considering an average 1.4 people per car currently in Amman

Waiting time between BRT buses (headway) will not exceed 90 seconds during peak periods

4000 native trees (requiring less water and care) will be planted on median islands separating BRT lanes from traffic lanes along corridor 1 (Sweileh Mahatta).

BRT will reduce public transport travel time between Mahatta and the University of Jordan by almost one-half.

The access to the BRT stations will be through pedestrian bridges or tunnels or pedestrian crossings with traffic lights.
