Not for the weak-stomached

... is the prose describing BRT in this Tappan Zee PDF. Apparently the source of this stuff is the Bus Rapid Transit Practitioner's Guide.

A wonderful read, given an ability to read between the lines. "We used to call it all the advantages of rail without any of the disadvantages, until people pointed out that the statement was a steaming pile of BS, and so we shifted it to a laundry list of characteristics."

"And note the way we quoted what we said originally and then shifted to what we say now without every mentioning that the reason we don't just keep on saying the original is its a load of bull shit? I hope you think that's clever ... we certainly do."
