The Doncaster Bus Rapid Transit project is a proposal only at this stage. Elements of the proposal would evolve through extensive engagement with the community and other stakeholders should the Victorian Government support the further development of the proposal.

Bus Rapid Transit separates purpose-built, high-capacity buses from other traffic such as cars and trucks via a dedicated lane that provides full right of way. Transdev is involved in successful bus rapid transit operations in Bogotá in Columbia, and the French cities of Rouen and Nantes.
