The Blue Line posted a link to a revealing 4-minute video from a nonprofit called EMBARQ about the successful deployment, done in four years, of the Metrobus bus rapid transit network in Istanbul. See EMBARQ’s article. If Istanbul can do that, The Blue Line asks, “Why can’t we?”

Examples of successful BRT systems could turn around all the “Hey, what about that railroad you promised us?” sentiment in town.
