About: 

Bus service is an integral part of the public transport backbone and may in many cities be the highest form of mass transit. Bus service not only act as feeder function for accessing higher order public transport (metro, LRT, etc.) but can offer the flexibility, capacity, and reliability needed in an urban environment if designed and operated carefully.

However, buses have to share the road with other traffic, and with continued urbanization and motorization, buses are also getting stuck in traffic- negatively impacting operational efficiency and level of service. As a result, there are a number of measures that can provide more priority to buses (which carry many more people than a private car) on the road, at junctions, etc. Bus priority schemes range from special treatments at junctions, dedicated bus lanes, bus only areas, to full Bus Rapid Transit.
