English Abstract

The risk management (RM) has huge effect of cost saving and time performances to infrastructure project.

The decision making process in infrastructure projects needs to be supported from tools that will enable risk identification, analysis and response strategy formulation to be developed.

The aim of the current study is to manage risk in Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems in Jordan, to achieve success in infrastructure projects in Jordan in need to develop strategies for managing and improving them in the future.

The problem with this research is that when the BRT began in Jordan, it faces many challenges and obstacles to the success of operating of the project.

There for BRT infrastructure project carry significant risks.

That need to be manage effectively.

This study highlights the risks associated with a project to success BRT in Jordan.

By reviewing previous studies, 38 risks were identified and used in the questionnaire distributed to a sample of 270 respondents, 137 were returned and 115 were accepted for analysis.
