Bandra to Sion all the long routes and catering as feeder servicesDadar no infrastructure or space close to station all routes are passing routes and serve as feeders alighting points are Plaza Cinema and Kabootar Khana onthe west side and Dadar TT on the east sideLong Routes Serving as Feeder
  • 40. Lack of proper infrastructure at station areas for feeder busesStation areas need to be organized with proper access topedestrians by providing footpaths, organizing vendingarea, space allocation for auto/taxi standsIdeally feeder lengths should be 5-7 kms but have gone beyond7-8 kms from the stations in the recent timesFor feeder services running time/kms has become very highLimited resources- Fleet/PersonnelChallenges
  • 41. Non availability of space for maneuvering at end locationsNeed for pedestrian discipline and vehicle discipline.Challenges Cont’d…Private vehicles, autos, taxis (off-peak direction) pick people in off-peak direction after doing theiractual tripUni-directional pattern of travel (fortrunk as well as feeders)Competition from IPT’s and privateoperators
  • 42. Feeders are an integral part of mass transit system of a cityProvide last mile connectivityProper planning needs to be done to ensure safe andreliable movement of passengersNeed for better integration between feeder services anddestination nodesSummary
