  4. 4. Bus Rapid Transit is high-quality, customer-orientated transit that delivers fast, comfortable and low-cost urban mobility. : • Segregated bus ways • Rapid boarding and alighting • Efficient fare collection • Comfortable shelters and stations • Clean bus & modern technologies • Sophisticated marketing identity • Excellence in customer service WHAT IS BUS RAPID TRANSIT (BRT) SYSTEM? BRT - A METRO EXPERIENCE ON ROAD THROUGH TECHNOLOGY INNOVATIONS AT 1/20th THE COST Centre of Excellence in Urban Transport, CEPT University, Ahmedabad High Quality Transport at Affordable Costs
  5. 5. • Janmarg focused corridor utilization with economic viability. • Janmarg has focused to keep atleast two routes on each corridor to regulate cumulative frequency (i.e. corridor utilization) thus keeping corridor busy. • Busiest corridor in Janmarg has 48 buses per hour per direction in peak hour. 1. Maintaining Corridor Exclusivity • Creating a BRTS Identity • An idle corridor creates a negative image for MV Lane users, hence maintaining frequency is challenge.
  6. 6. • Currently Traffic Management for BRTS Junctions are handed over to Traffic Police. While due to over burden on expanding services with limited Human Resource junction management has been an issue. 2. Regulatory Challenges • Janmarg is finding an Alternate mechanism for managing exclusivity of BRTS corridor through BPMC Act – 208 & Penalty for violation through BPMC Act – 393 applicable under municipal corporation.
  7. 7. • Indian society is fare sensitive. • There is a market competition existing with private services and informal transit systems such as IPT which have low fares. • Equivalent competitions is with 2-Wheelers • Janmarg has developed Fare Regulatory Mechanism, a formula approved by state which allows annual updating of fare based on WPI and Fuel price variation. • Janmarg is also exploring strategic fare such as adopting reduced fare for low demand corridor 3. Fare Management
  8. 8. • BRTS is more about Operations & Management than just infrastructure development. • Reducing Dead km have been challenge and therefore Depot locations are identified closer to terminal points in different zones. Still rationalizing dead km with limitations for land availability in urban context is a challenge. 4. Bus Operations • Janmarg has flexible scheduling depending of weekday, festivals (like navratri) and seasons. • Janmarg has also abided all operations under labour laws Zund al IIT A E C Sola Bahgwat Lal Darwaj a Gita Man dir Soni ni Chali Odhav Ring road Odhav GIDC Naroda Gam Hatkesw ar Jasoda nagar Vasana Janmarg Routes
  9. 9. • Though it is difficult to satisfy expectations individual commuters (received through regular user feedback) though Janmarg has responded to suggestion from society to deliver the best practice. • Janmarg has continuously achieved a rating of 8.7 to 9.2 out of 10 in all monthly surveys. • To avoid fair leakages, Janmarg has a policy for staff rotation on BRTS stations 5. Operation Monitoring • Janmarg has kept a closer look on regular service levels through monthly surveys.
  10. 10. • Smart Management through ITMS has resolved many regulatory issues for Janmarg. • Janmarg uses PIS, AVLS, Afc, O&M and Scheduling through IT management. • While IT industry is continuously developing it is a challenge to maintain skill resources and deliver diverse task as single system • Hardware have 9yr lifecycle while Software have perpetual life. Continuously changing its compatibility and continuity. 6. ITMS
  11. 11. • For delivering the desired services regular maintenance is equally important. • Regular maintenance of IT-hardware and Civil works are monitored weekly directly by Janmarg. • Janmarg deliver all its services through contracts, hence contract management monitoring has been key strength of Janmarg for achieving service levels. 7. Maintenance Issues Rutting in Pavement IT Hardware
  12. 12. • The Roadway infrastructure is designed with a concept of COMPLETE STREET. Utilising RoW for Mobility. • The utilization of roadway edges has limited the designed capacity for MV lane. 8. Managing Road Edge • Parking and Encroachments has reduced upon MV lane capacity. • Enforcement of corridor utilization is with corporation and efforts are being made on same. Footpath & Curbing
  13. 13. • Lack of Technical Human Resource both expertise as well as experienced • With AFC and ATC adding new dimensions in decision making • Skill requirements are modifying with regular up-gradation of IT and its utility in PT Services • Need for extensive Training and Development Programme in field of Transport Operation and Management • Janmarg is enrolling in events like leaders program by SUTP and other technical capacity building programme • Also Janmarg gives advisory support to other organizations and sharing experience. 9. Capacity Building
  14. 14. Need of Cultural Change • Companies to Take Ownership • Not to depend on Subsidies • Address Market Competition • Identify Non-fare box revenue resources • Achieve Sustainability in Operation-Management 10. Companies to Act like Companies
  15. 15. • Maintaining Identity of System • Multimodal integration (physical, fare, institutional) • Janmarg exploring opportunities for AMTS-BRTS integration (pilot started with sharing 35CNG buses with right side door to 5-AMTS routes) • Last Mile Connectivity (Feeder services) – Janmarg exploring impacts of extended routes to 6-locations (AMTS terminals) within a km from corridor. • Development of UMTA • Exploring TOD is in process with AUDA announcing higher FSI along BRTS corridor. GOING BEYOND BRTS
