BRTS- Bus Rapid Transit System in Pune: Modeling, Simulation and Feasibility Analysis . Success factors in BRT systems Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a high capacity, low cost public transit solution that can significantly improve urban mobility. It is the sixth largest city and seventh largest metropolitan area of India. Out of the eight cities, Ahmedabad has almost 30% of the total fleet size. Chairman P&D Waseem said that the concept paper of the project has been cleared by the PDWP which has been sent to the Planning Development and Reforms Planning Commission for consideration and approval in the CDWP. [22][23] The third phase of the project includes the Shivranjani-APMC, Jashodanagar-Hathijan, Sola-Science City, Narol-Aslali and Akhbarnagar-Gota Crossroads stretches. Abstract: Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) is the Safe, Economical, Rapid, Convenient & New concept of Public transport in Indian scenario perhaps in India there are more than 150 series of B.R.T.S was running successfully world wide the few examples are Bogota, Beijing, etc, Ahmedabad (India) is also a successful example of BRTS.

To meet the large demand and improve the capacity and productivity of buses, ICTSL has proposed to plan, to develop and operate Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) in Indore. Bus rapid transit system (BRTS) is described as “an integrated system of facilities, services, and amenities that collectively improve the speed, reliability, and identity of bus transit”. [11], Several cities are constructing and planning BRTS based on the model of Ahmedabad such as Chennai, Bangalore, Mumbai, Amritsar and Bhubaneswar. It is designed by CEPT University. [28] Parts for the buses are provided by Tata Motors. Only 18% of the total population of the city uses public transport. It was showcased at 2012 United Nations Climate Change Conference as a 'lighthouse project' as part of the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's Momentum for Change Initiative. [40], Between 2016 to 2019, there were 22 fatal BRTS accidents happen. It is operated by Ahmedabad Janmarg Limited, a subsidiary of Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation and others. x���� All 149 routes of the AMTS will resume operations from 6 am till 11 pm, while 13 routes of the BRTS will resume operations from 7 am till 10 pm. 55 0 obj [10][11] It was inaugurated in October 2009. 76 0 obj That operator is responsible for operating the bus safely along the route, as well as managing passenger boarding and alighting at stops along the route. The concept of BRTS is to encourage more people on the public transit system, which with high quality service is delivered. When the concept of BRTS was presented to the authorities, it was more liked in comparison to Ahmedabad-Gandhinagar Metro at that time (this must be a couple of years before 2009 when Ahmedabad Janmarg Limited (AJL) commenced operation of the first line of BRTS) due to the following reasons: Lesser capital cost (CAPEX) In regard to design, Curitiba, the Brazilian city fashioned BRTS stations at grade. In 2006, Pune became the second city after Ahmedabad to introduce the BRTS (Bus Rapid Transit System) project, an ambitious scheme that envisaged the implementation of a high-quality public transport system to offset the rising vehicular traffic and the subsequent congestion within city limits. – Ahmedabad – DNA", "In era of BRTS, users of public transport shrink", "BRTS takes up 35% of road space for just 1% of traffic", "Budget cleared for 3rd phase of Ahmedabad's BRTS project", "Women BRTS buses on five routes from Jan 8", http://www.ahmedabadbrts.org/web/AirportShuttleService.html, "Clean fuel BRTS dream stolen by toxic diesel", "BRTS' APPealing plan for hassle-free ride", "UN Climate Change Negotiations 2012: Ahmedabad's Bus Rapid Transit System to be showcased by United Nations", "Ahmedabad, India Wins 2010 Sustainable Transport Award", "Developed Ahmedabad impresses World Bank", "Ahmedabad Janmarg BRTS brings honour to Gujarat", "People of Ahmedabad can vandalize BRTS anytime, says IB report", "Chinese expert finds flaws in Ahmedabad BRTS", http://ahmedabadmirror.indiatimes.com/ahmedabad/cover-story/heres-why-brts-isnt-smooth-ride-for-all/articleshow/58885025.cms, "In four years, 22 fatal BRTS accidents in Ahmedabad", "2 Brothers Dead After Bus Runs Over Two-Wheeler In Ahmedabad", "Ahmedabad: Two brothers crushed to death by BRTS bus", Institute for Transportation and Development Policy, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Memorial, Ahmedabad Textile Industry's Research Association, Vikram A Sarabhai Community Science Centre, Mudra Institute of Communications Ahmedabad, Adani Institute of Infrastructure Management, Lalbhai Dalpatbhai College of Engineering, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport, Mumbai–Ahmedabad high-speed rail corridor, Citizens awarded national civilian honours, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Ahmedabad_Bus_Rapid_Transit_System&oldid=991306722, All Wikipedia articles written in Indian English, Articles containing potentially dated statements from June 2018, All articles containing potentially dated statements, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, 14 (11 bi-directional, 2 circular, 1 shuttle) (June 2018).
