The 13.2-kilometer bus rapid transit lane will traverse the South Road Properties (SRP) through Mambaling, up to IT Park, with 17 stations, two terminals and one depot.

Along with the BRT, there will be a 20.2-kilometer bus feeder system to run with mixed traffic, complemented with sidewalk bus stops/ shelters along the following routes: Cebu IT Park-Talamban, Mambaling-Bulacao, and Talisay- SRP.

Once fully operational, the Cebu BRT aims to serve around 60,000 passengers daily.
