Getting around Guangzhou

Stop thinking about Manhattan and start thinking about the new emerging cities of the planet.  These are the places where new planning and design ideas will really get put to the test.  While they are often a magnet for notable designs, they are also creating a massive set of problems for planners.  China's Guangzhou is one of the fastest growing cities in the world and is trying to deal with a level of congestion and a need for transit on a scale that most cities can't even imagine.  One of their solutions has been to develop a comprehensive transportation system centered on a Bus Rapid Transit system that is featured in a new video from StreetFilms.
