Abstract

BRT systems are a combination of flexibility and economics of conventional bus systems with the speed and comfort of metro systems. In the world, the number of BRT systems and their passengers increase day by day and these systems become an integral part of daily working life. BRT systems offer advantages such as speed, comfort, short project duration, low construction and maintenance cost. However, while BRT systems offer these advantages, the question arises as to how much attention is paid to safety and security, which is one of the performance indicators of BRT system, while designing BRT systems. In this study, BRT systems in the world have been examined in terms of safety and security. The concepts of safety and security which cause meaning complexity by using the same meaning in Turkish literature are used in different meaning in the terminology of BRT systems. The study also explain these terms in details to overcome this complex. As a result, it has been understood that the full responsibility for the safety and security of BRT systems can be achieved by the joint responsibility of lawmakers, designers, agencies and system users. It is thought that this study will be a good guide anyone interested in this field.
