TransMilenio

Bus in Bogotá

The ambitiously named TransMilenio, modeled after a similar groundbreaking system in Curitiba, Brazil, has revolutionized Bogotá's public transportation. Numerous plans and studies were made to build a metro, but after 30 years the project was buried and a decision was taken to introduce a fast urban bus service instead. Today the TransMilenio is the world's largest BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) system.
