CONNECTKaro 2015 - Session 7B - Safe Access to Transit – Issues, Challenges and Imperatives

  1. 1. Safe Access to Transit – Issues, Challenges and Imperatives Dr. Sanjay Gupta School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhiconnectkaro.org
  2. 2. Introduction • Transit stations are an important component of an integrated public transport network • Good station area has the potential to - maximises transit ridership - creates vibrant public space - service community needs and provide affordable mobility options - contribute towards parking management - enhance sustainable mobility environment, and - help realise economic benefits of transit investments connectkaro.org #CK2015
  3. 3. Need for Safe Access • In India about 10 metro rail systems and 19 BRT systems are in different stages of planning, construction, operations etc. • However existing MRTS stations are not being perceived as places of connectivity • Very limited public participation with key stakeholders in planning and development of MRTS • Attempts of station area improvements in some cities (Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru etc.) vary in their approaches • Need to provide improved connectivity, accessibility, safety etc. at transit stations in an integrated manner connectkaro.org #CK2015

  8. 8. Strategies to integrate safe access • Provide sustainable last mile mobility mode options (low carbon modes such as walking, cycling, NMT) • Ensure comfortable transition through an integrated feeder network for seamless transfer • Enhanced safety and security • Evolve an effective parking management environment • Create an enhanced public realm through innovative place making connectkaro.org #CK2015
  9. 9. Challenges • Lower level of enforcement and limited public participation for effective station area development • Uncoordinated multiple institutional structures • Absence of requisite knowledge and technical capacity • Absence of guidelines for station area - planning, implementation and evaluation connectkaro.org #CK2015
  10. 10. Opportunities • Higher urban densities • Higher NMT modal share • Availability of informal employment • Renewed interest in low carbon modes amongst public • Recognition for promotion of sustainable mobility options amongst policy planners and decision makers • Availability of vast pool of knowledge and experiences across the globe connectkaro.org #CK2015
  11. 11. Imperatives • Need to incorporate station area access plans in city Master Plans/Zonal plans/LAP’s • Need to sensitise public, policy makers and decision makers on safe access to transit • Need to create a unified Station Area Authority- SPV • Need to evolve and test guidelines for station area planning, implementation and evaluation through pilot studies • Need to promote research on evolving a comprehensive approach to evolve safe last mile connectivity to transit stations connectkaro.org #CK2015
