Cities in Focus | Curitiba, Brazil

Curitiba is renowned for its sustainable practices, largely due to its effective bus rapid transit (BRT) system. This system provides daily service to 2.7 million riders, including residents like Wesley who rely on it for school and work commutes. The BRT system has supported the transformation of former industrial and underdeveloped areas into vibrant corridors. BRT in Curitiba has helped reduce traffic congestion and urban sprawl, attract new development, and enhance the quality of life for the city’s nearly 2 million residents.
