In a sign of the seriousness of the BRT planning in Dandong, which ITDP has supported and provided input to, the officials visited the Guangzhou BRT and Donghaochong greenway. Dandong's planned BRT corridor is 25km long with 37 stations. The corridor will connect the coach terminal in the south to Zhenzhupao in the north, passing through the heart of the city center and accessing the main train station. The corridor serves the northern Zhen’an District, the downtown Yuanbao District, and Zhenxing District. The corridor will also serve major new development areas to the south, including the new location of the Dandong municipal government offices. The BRT corridor passes through a range of appealing and diverse urban roads. ITDP has been involved with the Dandong project from the early stages, hosting Dandong officials on study tours to see the Guangzhou BRT and Yichang BRT and providing input to the planning and design being carried out by GMEDRI in Dandong.
