How Different is Rapid Transit from the Current Rapid Ride

Albuquerque currently has 'rapid ride buses'. The rapid transit buses are designed differently.

Do rapid transit buses have more features?

The rapid transit buses boast radio controllers, Wi-Fi, and security cameras. These are all installed on the current Rapid Ride buses.

What are the differences?

They are supposed to look more like trains and seem more like trains inside.
The rapid transit buses are level with the boarding platform. This way they don't have to put out a ramp to pick up wheelchairs. Rapid transit buses have more doors so passengers can get on and off easier - pedestrians board at one door, wheelchairs at another door and bicycles at another door. Rapid transit passengers are required to buy their ticket from a kiosk before getting on the bus.
