Panel Discussion On Multi Modal Transportation

  1. 1. My everyday transit: home to office
  2. 2. Need for integrated mass transit system?
  3. 3. Modelling for an Integrated Urban Mass Transit System <ul><li>To develop a model for planning an effective and efficient integrated urban mass transit system for any city which has a potential demand for a new rail-based mass transit system besides the street transit system and existing rail-based system (if any) </li></ul>Origin Destination Walking Waiting Travel Travel Transfer Walking
  4. 4. <ul><li>A sequential modelling approach was developed which consists of three models </li></ul><ul><ul><li>rail transit corridor identification </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>feeder route generation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>integrated scheduling model . </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The approach was applied on Thane City </li></ul>
  5. 5. Metro Bus Feeder Network design <ul><li>BCCF suggested that a feeder network could improve the Metro ridership significantly </li></ul><ul><li>BMRCL asked BCCF to study its feasibility. This was done. </li></ul><ul><li>Based on the report, BCCF followed up with a pilot BMTC bus feeder network for Yeshwantpur Metro Station </li></ul><ul><li>BMRCL has asked BCCF to provide a feeder network design for Reach 1 </li></ul>Metro reach without a feeder service would limited covering only 4.5% of the city area Feeder service could help Metro to reach to 32% of the city area Working with Metro Rail to increase its reach and maximize ridership
  6. 7. BUS RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEM(BRTS)
  7. 8. DESIGN ELEMENTS
  8. 9. <ul><li>7.3m wide bus lanes in the center </li></ul><ul><li>Uninterrupted bus lanes </li></ul><ul><li>All turning movements possible at junctions </li></ul><ul><li>No conflict with NMT </li></ul>DESIGN ELEMENTS
  9. 10. <ul><li>3.5m wide bus stops on kerbside </li></ul><ul><li>Avoids too much bulging of bus lane; allows smoother flow of mixed traffic </li></ul><ul><li>Located 25m from junction to avoid bus bunching </li></ul>DESIGN ELEMENTS
  10. 11. <ul><li>3 lanes for mixed traffic </li></ul><ul><li>Two lanes for heavy/ fast moving vehicles </li></ul><ul><li>One lane for light/slow moving vehicles </li></ul><ul><li>4 lanes for mixed traffic at junctions </li></ul><ul><li>Allows more waiting space for mixed traffic </li></ul><ul><li>Reduces queue length and clears junction quickly </li></ul>DESIGN ELEMENTS
  11. 12. <ul><li>2.5m wide multi-purpose ‘strip’ </li></ul><ul><li>Used for parallel parking </li></ul><ul><li>Tree-pits at regular interval; landscaping wherever required </li></ul><ul><li>Part of utility corridor; used to locate junction boxes </li></ul>DESIGN ELEMENTS
  12. 13. <ul><li>2m wide bicycle track </li></ul><ul><li>Complete segregation of bicycles from mixed traffic </li></ul><ul><li>Merging 25m before junctions to enable cyclists to complete turning movements </li></ul><ul><li>Part of utility corridor underneath </li></ul>DESIGN ELEMENTS
  13. 14. <ul><li>2m wide footpath </li></ul><ul><li>175mm high from bicycle track </li></ul><ul><li>Additional width at junctions to cater to higher number of pedestrians </li></ul><ul><li>Completely obstruction free; no hoardings, junction boxes etc. </li></ul>DESIGN ELEMENTS
  14. 15. Thank you Questions?
