Mexico City got some drivers to ditch their cars and take the bus instead. They did it with a special system known as bus rapid transit.

WBUR's Bostonomix reporter Zeninjor Enwemeka went across the border to check out the system, and whether it could be a viable solution for Boston's own transportation woes. She joined Morning Edition host Jack Lepiarz to discuss her series ¡Viva Buses! airing this week.
