  8. 8. Transformation of existing operators • Replacement, formalization of minibus-taxi operators • Initially limited to competing services in corridor • 12-year negotiated bus operating contracts • Very slow and costly: – Existing services seen as “property rights” – compensation paid – PLUS premium paid for bus operating contract – (PLUS some continue operating anyway) 13 July 201810
  9. 9. ITS architecture • EMV standard for fare card • Several costly mistakes in technology, user interaction (fare cards) • Now starting to integrate with other bus services • Technological mismatch between bus operators and bus control 13 July 201811
  10. 10. Changing BRT perspectives Lighter, more flexible infrastructure – City of Cape Town’s MyCiti Phase 2A • Construction estimates = 2x that of Phase 1 per km • Considering 23 of 53km trunk routes in mixed traffic • Considering 28 of 47 stations open design (median or curbside) • New routes low-floor, low-platform – City of Johannesburg’s Rea Vaya Phase 1C+ • Scale back dedicated trunk routes • Outer extensions to include more mixed traffic routes Greater role for paratransit as feeders (hybrid systems) Source: TDA, City of Cape Town; COJ
