Putting ITDP’s BRT Climate Impact Calculator Into Practice

97

The team used a new ITDP tool, which is now publicly available: the BRT Simple Calculator of Project Effects (SCOPE). This user-friendly Excel spreadsheet predicts the climate and air quality impacts of adding or upgrading a BRT corridor, providing key evidence for planners and decision-makers looking to make the case for investing in BRT. The SCOPE tool is an update to ITDP’s BRT module of TEEMP (Transport Emissions Evaluation Models for Projects), first released in 2012. The updated BRT SCOPE tool improves on the TEEMP tool with a simpler interface, new default data sources, fewer data requirements for users, and new ways of calculating future ridership.
