  3. 3. Two main modes ofcommuting- Rail- BEST BusesRole of BEST- To feed & supplementRail Services- Provide East-WestConnectorsMUMBAI & ITS TRANSPORTINFRASTRUCTURE
  4. 4. About the BESTThe Brihan-Mumbai Electric Supply and TransportUndertaking (BEST), is a leading Intra City passengertransport organization operating from the city of Mumbai (ACity that never sleeps).The BEST Undertaking provides Bus Transport within Brihan-Mumbai limits and also in Navi Mumbai, Thane and Mira-Bhayander areas.On an average 41 lakh passengers are travelling dailythrough 63,700 trips operated on 510 bus routes with the helpof 4623 eco-friendly buses.
  5. 5. Total BEST Buses- 4167Operational Buses- 4011BusesTotal Routes- 506Feeder Routes – 265(spanning less than 10 kms)Feeder Routes – 52% of totalroutesNumber of Feeder Buses –1533 (38% of total buses)Number of Passengers (dailyaverage) – 40,32,475Statistics
  6. 6. Feeder bus services are designed to pick up passengers ina locality and take them to a transfer point where they makean onward journey on a trunk service.Trunk service can be another bus, or a rail based servicesuch as a tram, rapid transit or train.Feeder buses act as part of a wider local network, or aregional network.Planning and design of feeder services requiresunderstanding of the existing origin-destinationpoints, network connectivity, ease of transfer from/to thefeeder service, competing alternatives, fare pricing, routingetc.Introduction
  7. 7. Serving short distances typically between 4-6kmsHigh frequency serviceServing residential/commercial areas from/to trunk routesProviding last mile connectivityFare pricing a key factor because of other competing modesCharacteristics of a Feeder Service
  8. 8. Circular Routes in businessdistrictsOrigin/Destination basedfeeder service Employment Based Residential Based Tourism BasedPeak Period ServicesLong Distance routes, servingas feeders along certainsections along popular routesTypes of Feeder Service
  9. 9. Distance from the origin to destinationTravel Time based on actual traffic conditions (peak vs. nonpeak)Nature of stretch - congestion levels, signals, constraintsalong the routeAvailability of resources - Fleet Size and PersonnelFrequency of the servicePassenger potentialCoordination with trunk timingsInfrastructure at the trunk-end, eg: at the locationPlanning of Feeder Services
  10. 10. 0-2 kms Rs. 62-3 kms Rs. 83-5 kms Rs. 105-7 kms Rs. 127-10 kms Rs. 15*Returns are high for short distanceFare Structure (Mumbai) for Feeder Service*some loop bus routes have a flat rate of Rs 6, like the FortPheri bus
  11. 11. Daily Ticket Sales:9,09,06,731Monthly PassholderSales: 3,60,426Ticket Purchases by Feeder Passengers (January 2013)
  12. 12. 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
  13. 13. 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
  14. 14. 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
