This is a list of bus rapid transit (BRT) systems which are in operation or under construction. The term "BRT" has been applied to a wide range of bus services. In 2012, the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) published a BRT Standard to make it easier to standardize and compare bus services.
The Lagos Bus Rapid Transit System (Lagos BRT) is Africa's first. The Nigerian government is building a BRT system for the Lagos Metropolitan Area, and the project's first phase has been completed. The first phase, from mile 12 through Ikorodu Road and Funsho Williams Aveğnue to CMS, was commissioned on March 17, 2008.
The Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA) BRT corridor is about 22 kilometres long. Two operators, NURTW Cooperative and the state-owned Lagos BRT, contributed about 180 high-capacity buses to the first phase. It is the world's most economical BRT, costing $1.6 million per km for the 22-km route. The first phase cost N4.5 billion (about US$35 million) and included elevated segregation barriers, road repairs on bus and service lanes, de-silting of blocked drainage channels, and bus stops. Included in this group includes the Oshodi - Abule-Egba BRT Lane and many others
- Cape Town: The city's MyCiTi system began operations in May 2010, just before the World Cup. Its first service was a shuttle from the airport to the central business district. The initial Phase 1A trunk and feeder services began operation in May 2011. The remaining Phase 1A construction was completed in 2014, and phase 1B construction was completed in 2015.
- Johannesburg: The Rea Vaya ("We're moving") line opened its first phase (phase 1A) to the public on 30 August 2009, and BRT expansion is under construction; stations and roadworks are mainly completed or are in the final stages. The system was partially opened for the 2010 World Cup, with the full system linking most of Johannesburg from Soweto in the south to beyond Sandton in the north. Buses include those able to use the BRT stations and general bus stops, to be feeders for the network; others are articulated, and can only use BRT stations. Like most transport projects, the system will be implemented in phases. Phase 1 of the estimated two-billion-rand projects has run articulated right-of-way buses along dedicated median bus lanes in both directions across Johannesburg since 2010, covering almost half the city. The 120-km Phase 1 route includes 150 stations, eight terminals, and six depots. Phase 1A, consisting of a 40-km route with 48 stations, was completed in April 2009 (before the FIFA Confederations Cup); Phase 1B added 86 km and 102 stations to the system before the 2010 World Cup. According to the city's website, the system is fully integrated with other transport networks. Rea Vaya will not compete with other transport systems, such as the South African Rail Commuter Corporation or the Gautrain.
- Nelson Mandela Bay: A BRT system was implemented in the city for the 2010 World Cup. Bus lanes have been built through the city, with buses built by Marcopolo.
- Tshwane: Construction began in July 2012, and the system was to be operational from five in the morning to midnight.
- Rustenburg: The Yarona ("It is ours") BRT system began with Phase 1A trunk and feeder services in 2016.
Dar-es-Salaam began operations for its first BRT corridor on 10 May 2016. Construction of the first phase was completed in December 2015 at a total cost of €134 million funded by the African Development Bank, World Bank and the Government of Tanzania. The first phase of the project has a total length of 21.1 kilometers with dedicated bus lanes on three trunk routes with a total of 29 stations.

The service was expanded to a greater set of suburban connector routes, but rebranded into STS's regularly scheduled service. (e.g. 81, 82, 83, 84, and 86 serving outgoing routes, and are all consolidated as 8 when returning to the downtown terminal after serving their respective neighbourhoods.)
- Toronto: Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) formerly operated the BRT route, 196 York University Rocket on the York University Busway.

Following completion of the subway extension, the small portion near York University was closed and turned back to the university, whereas the just under 2km section between Finch West station and Dufferin Street remains in operation. The busway is still used by a handful of routes. Elsewhere, dedicated bus lanes are starting to be installed on city roadways, starting with Eglinton Avenue East, Kingston Road and Morningside Avenue in 2020. Jane Street is being planned through 2021, with three additional corridors (Dufferin, Steeles West and Finch East) to be designed afterwards. A sixth corridor (Lawrence East) is in consideration.
- Vancouver: TransLink's RapidBus started in 2020 as a successor to its B-Lines, with more passenger features and amenities. The 99 B-Line is the last remaining B-Line route and has been successful, but TransLink estimates that its SkyTrain costs about $0.75 per ride compared to $1.04-$2.22 for its BRT routes. Two B-Line routes have been replaced by rapid-transit lines; the 98 B-Line was replaced with the Canada Line in 2009 and the 97 B-Line by the Evergreen Extension in 2016. Another two B-Lines, the 95 and 96, were replaced with RapidBus routes, the R5 and R1 respectively. Along with the two upgraded B-Lines, there are also three other RapidBus routes, R2, the R3 and R4.

It will be eventually extended to Bison Drive.
- York Region, Ontario (suburban Toronto): York Region Transit's Viva began service in 2005. In response to escalating congestion on the region's roads, the region's transit plan included a provision for a BRT system along the Yonge Street and Highway 7 arterial corridors. Most of the system does not contain transit-priority measures, other than an honor system of fare payment. However, construction is underway on dedicated busways, and the first segment opened on March 6, 2011.

Bogotá's segregated, four-lane TransMilenio system has a maximum peak-load capacity of 45,000 passengers per direction per hour (ppdph) on its busiest line. The system uses modular median stations which serve both directions and enable prepaid, multiple-door, level boarding. The average stop time is 24 seconds. Trunk-line terminals have integrated bicycle parking; the fare card opens a gate to a secure bicycle-parking area. Two lanes in each direction permit "Quickways" (local service on the inside lane combined with express service, skipping four or five stations at a time). TransMilenio was described as a "model BRT system" in the National Bus Rapid Transit Institute's May 2006 report. It serves Bogotá with high-capacity, articulated, three-door buses. Bi-articulated buses are used on the busiest routes, and a smart card system is used for fare collection. Despite its large capacity, Transmilenio has problems with overcrowding.
