BRT Planning International, LLC is a certified WBE created in 2015. We are a boutique planning firm led by Annie Weinstock, former Regional Director for Africa and the US for the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) and Dr. Walter Hook, former CEO of ITDP. BRTPlan assists in the design and implementation of BRT systems and other sustainable transport projects around the world, bringing their expertise from projects in Johannesburg, Chicago, Guangzhou, Ahmedabad, Cape Town, and Dar es Salaam.
BRTPlan has the expertise to design and implement BRT systems that reach speeds and capacities equivalent to metro and subway systems, and exceeding the speeds and capacities achieved by street-level light rail systems.
Weinstock and Hook created BRT Planning International to make specialized BRT planning expertise commercially available, which we can perform faster, better, and at a lower cost than transportation planning firms which are not BRT specialists. Our focus on BRT enables us to streamline our planning methodologies so the result is the best possible BRT system.
BRTPlan is certified as a WBE with the City of New York, the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, the San Francisco County Transportation Authority, and the City of Seattle.
