Alta Go

projectGuangzhou BRT Cycletracks

Alta Planning + Design worked with the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) in Guangzhou, China on cycle track improvements to the Zhongshan corridor.

Zhongshan is a Bus Rapid Transit system serving more than 25,000 riders per hour in one direction at peak periods. Parallel to the BRT are sidewalks and cycle tracks in both directions. The cycle tracks are incomplete and end abruptly when approaching BRT stations and intersections. Alta worked with ITDP to develop improvements to the cycle tracks and to help make this corridor a worldwide model for multi-modal transportation.
