The problem is that in North America, BRT is treated as just that - mostly a cheap rebranding of express services. Unlike global best practices, BRT lines here are mostly a study of inconsistency from runningways (rarely 100% exclusive) to stations (a shelter with a bench, or a swank terminal on the same line), the schedules. We have alot to learn to build true systems.

Rio has partially finished one of it's Olympic BRT corridors, a 56 km regional line, with permanent fixed stations. I somehow doubt it will be torn out that easily.
