7 Central Bus Lanes in Delhi IIT Delhi

8 BRT corridor: The great Delhi divide NDTV Correspondent Thursday, May 1, 2008 (New Delhi) It's one of the most controversial infrastructure projects in the country but for all those who said that the Delhi Bus Corridor system was an out and out failure, here is a reality check. A poll conducted by NDTV shows that there is a sharp divide in opinion on the success of the project between those who use buses on the corridor and those who drive cars on the same stretch. Car vs. bus drivers A whopping 75 per cent of bus drivers say the BRT is a huge improvement for buses. 61 per cent of car drivers say driving is easier now that buses have their own lane bus drivers. 82 per cent of them say the new bus lanes for them make driving easier. Bus passengers 88 per cent of bus commuters feel the new BRT and its buses are an improvement on Delhi's public transport system IIT Delhi May 08

9 DELHI BUS CORRIDOR: AN EVALUATION EMBARQ, 2009 Despite the negative perception reflected in mass media outlets, the corridor users had a different opinion. The discussion of the benefits and problems of the corridor has been mostly based in perceptions and prejudices, rather than technical evaluations BRT has reduced delays for Bus commuters by 35% 9

10 The Bus Rapid Transit System in Delhi: An Independent Evaluation, Hazard Centre, August % persons are travelling in bus in peak hour Level of pollution increased during non BRT operations 80% people interviewed want BRT operations to continue 65 Fig 6: BRT peak modal share Cars/jeep /van 2 wheelers Autorickshaws DTC/Or/P vt Skl bus Cycle 1000 There is no forum for the vast majority of commuters and road users on the BRT corridor to express their views and approval for the BRT BRT is good and should be extended BRT is bad, it should be removed 10

11 Congestion for All Persons Moved on BRT Corridor Cyclists, 6% Buses, 49% Motor Vehicles, 45% Majority Users out of Congestion 11

12 After the court judgement in favour of BRT and three strong positive evaluations BRT CORRIDOR NOT EXTENDED 12

13 BRT progress since : RITES report for DELHI identifying travel demand in the city 2010 November : OCC inaugurated, intelligent signal system, GPS buses, Passenger information system 2011 May: Cluster buses rolled out. With this, cluster buses come under GPS monitoring in OCC (including data archiving, analysis) & also electronic ticketing on cluster buses. 13

14 BRT Progress since April: Report of the special task force(set up by the Highcourt of Delhi in the case WP(Civil)No.4572/2007 Manushi Sangathan Vs. GNCTD..in its order on 10 February, 2010) recommended 659km of BRT in Delhi(page 11, para2) 2012: The Govt of Delhi has identified 15 BRT corridors to cover a distance of around 230 kilometres. Out of these, DPR (detailed project report) for a 15 kilometres has been completed submitted for EFC. Preliminary project report/feasibility report has been prepared for approximately 100 kilometres. 14
