Indore BRT The story so far… Traffic Infra-Tech EXPO 22nd November 2013 Prashanth Bachu Chief Operations Adviser – AICTSL Project Manager (UT) – EMBARQ India

From the very beginning…

Before City Bus: Unorganised Transport in Indore

Indore City Bus: Project Basics Number of routes :: Average route length :: Number of bus stops :: Fleet Size :: Operating frequency :: Avg. daily ridership :: 15 18 km 210 95 buses 8 - 26 minutes 80,000 pax

Indore City Bus: Contributions Started in 2006 Lives saved due to Indore City Bus : 6.25 /year Hundreds of accidents avoided CO2 Reduced : ~5.5 ton/day 16% passenger mode-shift from private vehicles

But that was not enough!

What is the concept of BRTS… In accordance with the National Urban Transport Policy – 2006, the objective is to “moving people, not vehicles”

Features of iBus Centralized Control Distinctive Image Large Buses with Wide Doors Stations with Prepayment and Level Boarding Segregated Median Bus-ways 10

However, all was not going well…

Learning from experience…
