In the light of some comments made by people about the innovations made by Francis Yuseco on the the BRT (Bus Rapid TransIt) Yuseco himself explains the circumstances how Intel Track came into existence. Here he is:
There is no question or argument that Curitiba, Brazil Rede Integrade de Transporte (RIT) started in 1974 and proper credit should all go to it. At the same time, however, when the question arises that if I copied the Intelligent Trackways (Intel Track) system from the RIT and merely improved on it, I have to truthfully answer also that I did not.
After I conceptualized it, I completed a case method study which would allow the Philippines to develop its own mass transit system without having to resort to foreign borrowings and imported technologies.
However, even as our bus train was rejected, Gerhard Menckhoff , the World Bank expert on transportation sought me out to inquire about our bus train which I later named the Intelligent Trackways system. Mr. Menckhoff then wrote a very positive Internal Memorandum about it and distributed his memorandum to the other World Bank officials assigned in different parts of the world. The memorandum is dated April 30, 1990. Again, Mr. Menckhoff never mentioned anything about Curitiba's RIT.
