9 pilot projects rs final

  1. 1. Pilot Project Planning and Preparation Rod Stickland
  2. 2. 2 Objectives of Pilot Corridor Improvement Investigating and testing options for improving non-BRT bus services so as to: • Complement BRT and integrate public transport services • Reduce dependence on private car usage • Improve operational efficiency; and • Provide better service to passengers
  3. 3. 3 Recommended Approach •Keep the non-BRT services in the private sector, where – given an appropriate regulatory environment and reasonable fare levels – improved service levels can be achieved without recourse to subsidy •The Consultants believe that this solution is the most effective and will deliver the required service levels in the most efficient and cost-effective manner
  4. 4. 4 Implementation Strategy •Investigate “reform” in cooperation with existing operators …. and develop a PILOT PROJECT to assess how best to implement in local context •Not practical to introduce all aspects at one time .. so focus initially on key aspects .. and subsequently phase in the less critical aspects
  5. 5. 5 Key Elements of Pilot Project •A package of REFORM measures to address the key deficiencies and problems •Four key aspects of Reform: a. Institutional – legal and contractual issues b. Operational – scheduling and ticketing c. Financial – fares, revenues, costs, salaries d. Physical – traffic management, bus priority, new vehicles
  6. 6. 6 Implementation Actions •Objective is to work WITH existing operators to find ways to:  IMPROVE the service quality to travelling public …  Whilst ensuring operators’ financial viability •Select routes/corridors with significant bus volumes that are NOT affected by BRT •Assemble data relating to bus movements and passenger demand
  7. 7. 7 Key Components of Pilot Project (1) Select Pilot Project/Route Healthy Demand Separate from BRT No direct rivals Form Owners into Company Vehicle ownership transferred to Company Drivers Salaried Drivers and Helpers employed by company Set Service Standards Establish frequency, number of vehicles, hours of operation
  8. 8. 8 Key Components of Pilot Project (2) Contract Arrangements Establish basis of contract between Company & DISHUB Fares and Ticketing Establish basis of fares and determine maximum level Setoran abolished Fares revenue paid to Company: no daily vehicle rental Management & Operations Scheduling, control, monitoring and supervision
  9. 9. 9 Additional Components Physical On- Street Works Improve roadway, construct stops, control parking Traffic Management Bus priority measures, bus lanes, junction priorities Ticketing Systems Distance related fares, fare box, smart cards, etc Introduce New Urban Bus Low floor, easy access, maximum capacity (standees)
  10. 10. 10 Implementation of the Pilot Project Activities and Schedule 1. Preparatory work 2. Project Planning 3. Negotiate with owners 5. Implement operational change 7. Expand to additional corridors 4. Establish operating Company 6. Infrastructure Development
