According to the GAM, the first and second phases of the project entail, among others, preparing engineering designs for vital intersections in the city.

The GAM, in partnership with the World Bank, is currently developing a plan for the second phase of the 50-km BRT, at an estimated cost of JD140 million, to come from loans and grants.

The World Bank had said in earlier statements that it is currently working with the municipality to implement the second phase of the project in Amman, and that it is proud to participate in several projects in Jordan, most importantly the BRT, with the Ministry of Transport and the GAM.

The second phase will take the route from the 8th Circle, to Sweileh, Marj Al-Hamam, and downtown, where there is a station for the BRT in Ras Al-Ein.

An integrated public transport system is bound to save citizens time, effort and money, and to offer a real alternative to the use of private vehicles for transportation that is convenient, of high quality, takes the environment into consideration, and reduces traffic congestion.
