Location Bogota, Colombia

The Transmilenio Bus Rapid Transit of Bogota, the capital city of Colombia, is regarded as a model of capacity, speed and cost efficiency.[1]

It is claimed to move 1.3 million Colombians a day, resulted in 7000 fewer buses and reduced bus fuel consumption by 50 percent. It more than halved travel times for many commuters.

It was championed by Enrique Peñalosa who was the mayor of Bogota at the time. He scrapped plans to build a network of highways in the city and created the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) for a fraction of the cost.
