  7. 7. BRT Planning Process: Project Steps Operational Plan Equipment Definitions Demand Studies Infrastructure Plan Infrastructure Design Business Plan This is an iterative process. The operational plan gets developed, then it is checked by the business plan and infrastructure. Issues and problems will arise and they will be taken back to the operational plan to modify. B I D D I N G P R O C E S S Operation Reorganization
  8. 8. Operational Plan Answers the following questions based on calibrated demand model • • • • • • • • • How many passengers? What are the trunk routes? What are the feeder routes? How many buses and what capacity? At what frequency? Where are the stations, terminals, and depots? Estimated costs Estimated revenues What existing transit routes need to be removed or restructured?
  9. 9. Infrastructure Plan • Detailed engineering and design, geometric • Implementation Plan (traffic management and mitigation, etc.) • Environmental and Social Impact Assessments • Construction contracts awarded and supervised
  10. 10. Business Plan: Goals (1) • • • • Maximize the quality of the service over the long term Minimize the cost of the service over the long term Maximize the level of private sector investment over the long term Maximize the public benefit from the public investment •Making investment environment attractive for private investment • Determining for the government the fees to pay the private sector • Creating a financially viable system with no subsidy The BRTS give priority to public transportation over private and must serve to offer an opportunity to the traditional transporters to modernize their industry as well as to improve the working conditions of the drivers.
