    1. 1. TRANSFORMING TRANSPORTATION January 26 – 27,2012- Washington, DCEXPANDING THE METROVIA BRT AND FEEDER SERVICE IN GUAYAQUIL, ECUADOR ING. FEDERICO VON BUCHWALD federico.vonbuchwald@metrovia-gye.com
    2. 2. GUAYAQUIL KEY FACTS• Guayaquil, with 2´4 million inhabitants, is the largest city in Ecuador, islocated on the banks of the Guayas River, the largest river flowing into thePacific coast of South America.
    3. 3. The main public services of the city are concessions or contracts with nationalor international specialized companies such as:• Port of GuayaquilThe operation of the seaport of Guayaquil is under concession for 20 yearswith CONTENCON, a company created by International Container Terminaland Service (ICTSI) from Philippines.
    4. 4. • Airport GuayaquilSince July 2004, the operation and administration of Guayaquil´s Airportwere licensed to TAGSA, with a contract for 20 years until July 2024. Theairport tax for this airport is the lowest in Ecuador. 50% of proceeds goesinto a fund for the construction of a new airport after 15 years.
    5. 5. • Potable water, sanitary and storm sewerSince April 2001, it´s leased out for a period of 30 years, drinking waterand sewerage, to INTERAGUA, a company formed by internationalcompanies, including VEOLIA Waters. The price of drinking water is 0.56U.S. dollars per cubic meter.
    6. 6. • ElectricityUntil recently, the power supply of the city was contracted to a private company,but today the service is provided by the state, and we have problems with poweroutages.
    7. 7. • Solid waste collectionThe collection and transport of nonhazardous solid waste for the city areunder contract with the company Puerto Limpio, for a 7-yearcontract, paying up to 28 U.S. dollars per ton.
    8. 8. • LandfillThe disposal of nonhazardous solid wastes for the city is under contractwith the company CONSORCIO ILM Las Iguanas, a 7-year contract, with anapproximate price of 5 U.S. dollars per ton.
    9. 9. • Public TransportThe Municipality of Guayaquil through the Metrovia Foundation outsourced theBus operation, the control and engineering of the BRT system, the farecollection and the trust where the funds are kept, to private companies forperiods from 5 to 12 years.Additionally, the Municipality hired security guards, cleaning andmaintenance services for the bus stops and terminals, parks and roadsmedians along the system.
    10. 10. • Other services that are outsourced by the Municipality of Guayaquil are:Security, cleanliness and maintenance of parks.• The Municipality of Guayaquil has about 4000 employees. 15% ofexpenditures are for salaries and administrative expenses, and 85% isdedicated to public investment.• In November 2003, Kofi Annan, General Secretary of the UnitedNations, honored Guayaquil with the Efficiency and Governance award.
    11. 11. PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION KEY FACTS• Jaime Nebot, Mayor of Guayaquil took the decision to seek alternativemethods of transportation that would be more convenient for the city andgot involved in the project by changing the status quo and improving thepoor service provided. This decision affected some but the results arebeneficial for the city.• The studies were conducted with the support of the United NationsDevelopment -UNDP (P NUD in Spanish).• About 80% of the population in Guayaquil uses publictransportation. The tariff, (0.25 US dollars) despite being the lowestin Latin America, is sensitive to family income, representing 7.4% of basesalary.
    12. 12. • Conventional Public transportation • The average age of the conventional public transport buses is 18; vehicles are old, and have highly polluting engines. • The level of insecurity and disrespect is unbearable. • The oversupply of transport units originated the "bus racing." • Drivers work 14 hours a day.
    13. 13. • The studies recommended that a "Bus Rapid Transit" (BRT) be implementedwith dedicated lanes, bus level access at 90 cm, prepaid tickets, freetransfer, EURO III engines and integrated systems between suppliers, and wecalled all these Metrovia System.• The design of Metrovia runs thru the most demanded sectors of thecity, ensuring a high turnover rate. • The model for the operation of the BRT system is based on the structure thatthe city of Guayaquil uses through grants or service contracts with expertscompanies and specialized suppliers.
    14. 14. Status of the system:• Began operation in July 2006.• Two trunks lines in operation carrying an average of 300,000 passengers perday.• Metrovia has transported up to the year 2011 about400’ m passengers, with the total percentage of children, elderly, anddisabled the 5.73% of the total.• Infrastructure costs , are US$ 1.2 million per kilometer, and considering theinvestment of the bus carriers, it totalizes US$ 2.1 million per kilometer.
    15. 15. • The system serves all users, including children, elderly anddisabled, who pay a reduced fee of US$ 0.12, 97% of the busstops have access for wheelchairs.• The outputs of the vehicles in the peak hours are every twominutes; the highest waiting time is 5 minutes at very lowdemand hours.
    16. 16. • Due to the fact that the Foundation is not involved in the operation of thetransport system, it can be a direct contact with users to attend their claims forany inconvenience in the daily operation of the system, and becauseeverything is outsourced, Metrovia can demand immediate response to eachoperator for any inconvenience in the system, or it will applysevere penalties including the contract termination.• The proceeds from fines, product of non-compliance of services to users(approximately US$ 1.2 million accumulated to date 2006-2011) areinvested in infrastructure for the benefit of those users, Metrovia has installedCCTV cameras at all terminals, bus stops and feeders buses, also bought 2vans that provide door to door service for disabled people who live in thefeeders sector which can not be transferred to the trunk.
    17. 17. METROVIA FOUNDATION KEY FACTS• The Foundation Metrovia regulates controls and penalizes theconcessionaires of transport for non compliance of services.• The operation of the Foundation is not funded on fare collection;wages are covered trough the sale advertising spaces in terminals and busstops and with the rental of commercial areas inside the system. (Metroviahas 20 employees)• The people evaluate the Foundation trough the quality the public servicesprovided, not by the quantity or the brand of equipment purchased for thisreason, we hire services instead of buying equipment.
    18. 18. • The traditional way for public institutions has been tobuy equipment, then pay to learn how to operate them, later on hire themaintenance or improvement (in the case of software), and finally pay forrepairs. Summarizing, the provider of the selected products will sign 3contracts for the same item, the sale, maintenance and repair, and thesupplier has no responsibility for the service. For the supplier, themore damage occurs, the better the business.
    19. 19. • The Foundation Metrovia made concessions to the historical carriers whohad the operating permits, and serviced the areas involved where theimplementation of the trunk line would be. These carriers are experts in thisbusiness, are accustomed to the competition depending on the supply anddemand (in the conventional system of transportation). In Metrovia thetransportation contractor receives 91.5% of revenues produced by theservice.• Metrovia awarded to another contractor the operatingcontrol, engineering and fare collection (ITOR), payment for this service isindexed to the cost of transportation fee.
    20. 20. • Metrovia also hires specialized companies to cover other services such assecurity, landscaping, and cleaning companies.• Awarded a 12 year contract to a internet service provider to install a 24wire fiber optic cable using ducts installed by the Municipality, Metrovia andthe Municipality kept 4 wires and the provider the rest, Metrovia and theMunicipality pay NO data transportation fee for the duration of the contract.• Hired CCTV service. Payment is made based on the service provided to thecontrol center. If any camera is out of service, fines are applied as specified inthe contract.
    21. 21. • Created feeders routes linked directly to low demand bus stops in areas with large population. This improved the operation of the trunk line, and expanded the range of service from 3 blocks to 1.5 miles• Created a special service for the disabled. The user calls for a service appointment, the van will picks up the persons at their home and transports them to the nearest bus stop in the trunk line.• Created a special service for vulnerable people (women, elderly and children), with a preferential area on the bus.• This past week started a new service with the same van to transport passengers back and forth from a bus stop to different hospital located near the bus stop.
    22. 22. PLANS FOR THE FUTURE• In the near future Metrovia will be implementing the third trunk line called July 25 - Terminal Rio Daule, this trunk will have passing lanes, allowing express service buses which will make 2 or 3 stops before reaching downtown, the average operating speed expected is greater than 25 km/h and there are streets that are almost for Metrovia´s exclusively use.• The operations involving the activities required for the system will be hired by Metrovia, as a service which will incorporate the provision of equipment or devices that requires maintenance, some of these are turnstiles, doors, software control for the operation, inside lighting for stops, etc..
    23. 23. Source: Diario El Universo.
    24. 24. • We will contract the service sliding doors and turnstiles. The contractor will be responsible for the proper functioning of equipment, if there is noncompliance, penalties will be applied which will triple the cost values ​of the gate or turnstile, therefore, the contractor will most likely install high quality equipment to be durable and require minimal maintenance.• Bus stops inside lighting contract, payment will be made from measuring the lumens projected. The foundation will not buy lamps; it will pay for the service of enlightenment. The contractor will be interested in purchasing high quality lamps to lower costs of replacement and unnecessary maintenance.• Signing and pavement markings will be hired under the same figure, payment will be made according to measurement taken for retro- reflectivity, just as surely the contractor will look for the material that lasts longer and does requires less maintenance.
    25. 25. • Implemented bicycle storage areas in the vicinity of certain bus stops so that users can get these and use the System Metrovia, achieving intermodal integration. Estacionamiento de bicicletas gratuito en centro comercial Parque Arauco - Chile

    34. 34. Investment Cost of Urban Transit Modernization inLatin America – next 20 years242 Latin-American cities with more than 250thousand inhabitants, approximately 370millions of inhabitants, would require:− USD 27,000 millions from public investment for infrastructure, to put in operation 5,400 km additional BRT corridors− USD 70,000 millions from private investment for fleet renewal. SIBRT is promoting and developing a STRATEGIC ALLIANCE with participation of all the stakeholders of the bus transit industry.
