FACT CHECK —Cayetano: Bus Rapid Transit 'Sweeping the Country'
"BRT — bus rapid transit — is the new thing sweeping the country, OK?" Cayetano said in response to a question about the proposed Honolulu rail project. "Basically, imagine a giant Prius, an electric car with rubber tires on a dedicated lane. That's sweeping the country today, OK? No city (except Honolulu) is building or is planning to build heavy rail of the kind that the city proposes."
Is that true?
