Abstract

The development of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems is relatively recent in Europe and is very fresh on Italy; however, several systems are operating and much more are being planned. A more comprehensive understanding of the relationship between land uses and BRT systems are needed, particularly in comparison to other fixed-guideway modes such as heavy and light rail. While recognizing that existing land uses have an important and complex influence on the development costs and benefits of fixed-guideway projects, this research is focused on the impacts that BRT projects have on surrounding property values. This research seeks the impact of BRT system on the urban area where is a road intersection at grade such as turbo roundabout. The results are linked to before and after application of BRT in terms of microsimulation comparison results.
