  6. 6. Stations = component of a Bus system 1The EBSF project• European Bus System of the Future project = vehicles + infrastructures+ information systems• 47 partners from 11 European countries under the UITP leadership(2008 – 2012)• European Commission financed 16 M€ in a total of 26 M€ (ResearchFrame Program FP 7)• 7 first use-cases in Budapest, Madrid, Bremerhaven, Rouen, Brunoy,Budapest, Rome, about vehicles or information systems• RATP: focus on enhanced bus stations

  14. 14. Present situations overviewThe Parisian caseThe different urban furniture models dedicated to the bus network are notbased on the same responsibilitiesBus stops: financed and installed by RATPBus shelters: financed and installed by the urban furniture operator incontract with the Paris city CouncilTram platforms: financed as investments in the tram projectsBus terminals: financed as investments as independent projectsLarge bus stations: lack of optimized solutions except juxtaposition of basicshelters1.

  15. 15. 3.The enhancedstationconceptSão Paulo
  16. 16. The enhanced station conceptThe RATP Osmose research for the Great Paris network• A new metro station concept, identified through a regular architecturalcompetition on a fictional but realistic hub (on YouTube : osmose ratp)• More than a station, a mix-use urban complex :• enhanced• shared• upgreadable• expressive3
  17. 17. The enhanced station conceptApplication to the bus station case: the stakes• Urban serviceoperators• New players• Outdoorpublicityoperators• Other publicspace players• Transport authorities• Local authorities• Bus passengers• Neighbourhoods• Passers-byBus stationdemonstratorseduceconvinceinvolveinvite3
  18. 18. The enhanced station concept 3The objectives of enhanced bus stationsFor the passengers➔ more comfort, more well-being➔ more connexion and retail servicesFor the neighbours➔ local services, urban functions (rest, landmarks, …)For transport operators and authorities➔ attractivity, modernity, image➔ service philosophy, brand loyaltyFor the city➔ beauty, cultural ambition, prideFor the other service operators➔ extension and diversification of their market➔ urban visibility

  30. 30. The conclusions 5The resultsPassengers:extremely high satisfaction levelpositive impact on the bus imageMedia: astonishing high level of impact (worldwide)Classical information systems (paper, signage): compulsory !No vandalism: relaxed and respectful peopleAccessibility features: some difficulties to solveMaintenance: immediate high level of exigence• Bus passengers• Neighbourhoods• Passers-by
  31. 31. The resultsUrban design:Multifunctionality proven in a limited spaceParis city:Coherence with the local research agenda, oriented towardsdigital urban furnitureFeeding the future bus stops shelters tender (in 2013 - 2014),with many insights (modularity, sizing, information, services, …)used in the specsInterest for 100 enhanced bus stations in Paris (among 2000) tobe installed in 2015 - 2016• Transport authorities• Local authoritiesThe conclusions 5
  32. 32. The resultsEnergy: a basic matterRevelation of cost structure: the digital part (screens, systems, network,energy …) almost as expensive as the physical part (shelter, furniture,…)Understanding of possible business cases: if the proportion of enhancedstations is low (< 5% ?) and if the contract is long (> 10 years ?), theseenhanced stations should be normally included with innovative revenuepossibilities• Outdoorpublicityoperators• Other publicspace playersThe conclusions 5
  33. 33. The resultsAbout the tested services:The library: a major impact on the quality image with a low costhow to make it sustainable ?Street-food: a bit neglected in France, an economic sector tointertwin with bus stationsGlobally: the station should be modified to allow better placingand orientation towards the customersAbout the future:Interest of a living-lab, as incubator of innovative servicesCombination between the commercial retail sector, the publicservices sector and the new collborative economy sector• Urbanservicesoperators• New playersThe conclusions 5
  34. 34. Global results for the EBSF projectAs a research: proof of concept obtainedAs an event: a smart breakthrough in theagendaAs a service: not liked, but loved (problemsto dismount and to integrate in the currentoperations)As a strategic tool: an useful platformattracting partnersAs a vision: the public space as a marketfor an « Apple » of the urban furnituredomain ?The conclusions 5
