About Rapid Transit Systems

Rapid transit system is a type of high-capacity, high-frequency public transport generally found in urban areas. Unlike buses, rapid transit systems are electric railways that operate on an exclusive right-of-way, which is often grade separated in tunnels or on elevated railways, stopping only between designated stations. The rapid transit system has undergone significant changes over the years, with increased speed and efficiency, it is a system that every urban planner will incorporate into their urban transport model.
