Course: Innovation in the design and operation of urban public transport systems

The Transport Innovation Centre (CENIT) of the Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña (Barcelona, Spain) invited our Director, Juan Carlos Muñoz, to give this 10 teaching hours course on September 3-4, 2012. The group of 45 participants included authorities, operators, professors, researchers and students involved in the public transport area.
The focus of the course, which was given in Spanish, was to explain some of the main research findings of our Centre of Excellence. The state of practice of BRT implementations around the world was described, and a critic analysis of their planning was presented, with special focus on the case of Transantiago (Santiago, Chile).
