  7. Existing transit - Vadodara VITCOS Coverage • Fleet of 90 CNG buses (63mini buses, 27 regular) • 40 bus routes • 10 to 20 minutes headway • 124 bus stops • 85,000 to 100,000 Passenger/day (all buses) 9% PT share 23% Para transit Trip length 4.8km Source: Vadodara CDP and SREI report on mass transit

  8. Vadodara Road Network Ring – Radial Network 1 ring 7 radials 4 km 1.5km 7.3km 7.5km Vadodara is a compact city with short trip lengths

  9. Earlier proposals for Vadodara • Integrated Public Transit System in 2009 • Projects for mass transit identified • Potential transit corridors • Comprehensive Mobility Plan (CMP) in 2010 • To optimize the “mobility pattern of people and goods” rather than of vehicles • To focus on the improvement and promotion of public transport, NMV and pedestrians • To provide an effective platform for integrating land use and transport planning

  10. Mobility Challenges • Rapid Growth • High City Mobility • Inadequacies in the road network • Missing Hierarchy • Lack of uniformity In ROW • Constraints – River, Canal, Khadi, Railway Line • Inadequate Public Transport • Intrusion Of Regional Goods And Passenger Vehicles • Congestion

  11. BRT Planning for Vadodara • Network selection • Roadway & Infrastructure Design • Accessing inner city

  12. Proposed Vadodara BRT Network Fatehgunj Kareli baug GEB Kalaghoda R.C. Dutt Road kothi BSNL T Jn. Waghodia Road Raj Mahel Road Old Padra Road Lal baug Baroda Dairy Labor Chokdi Susan circle Makarpura Phase 1 – 34km Phase 2 – 26km Total Network – 60km

  13. Rationale for network selection Railway Station Laxmi Vilas Palace Fatehgunj M.S. University GEB Kalaghoda Connecting busy places R.C. Dutt Road kothi GIDC BSNL T Jn. Waghodia Road Raj Mahel Road Old Padra Road Inner city Lal baug Major residential and Recreational areas Baroda Dairy Labor Chokdi Susan circle Makarpura Phase 1 – 34km Phase 2 – 26km Total Network – 60km

  14. VITCOS routes and proposed BRT

  15. BRT alignment - Right of way 40m 36m 30m 12-16m

  16. Connecting the inner city Fatehgunj Kareli baug GEB Kalaghoda R.C. Dutt Road kothi BSNL T Jn. Waghodia Road Raj Mahel Road Old Padra Road Lal baug Baroda Dairy Labor Chokdi Susan circle Makarpura

  17. Issues Narrow Right of ways at places (upto 10-12m) Location of Heritage Gates On street vending and informal market places

  18. Issues

  19. Exploring options for accessing inner city Option 1 : Elevated Corridor • PRO(s): • Can respond to RoW constraints upto 18 m • CON(s): • Accessibility to BRT Stations • Increased cost of infrastructure • Visually unappealing

  20. Exploring options for accessing inner city Option 2 : Pedestrian + Bus only corridor Example:Kankaria, Ahmedabad Exploring spaces • PRO(s): • Safe and secure pedestrian infrastructure • CON(s): • Acceptance of people • Can only be adopted to stretches with limited public property access

  21. Inner City Transit Management Plan Salatwada Option 3 : Traffic Management Plan Macchipit Kothi X Rd. One way Mixed Traffic routes Raopura X Rd. Fatehpura X Rd. Sursagar Kala Bhavan Jn. Mandavi Gate NyayMandir Laxmivilas Palace Jn. Chokhnadiveg market BRT corridor Old city access routes Madanjhapa

  22. Exploring options for accessing inner city Option 4 : mini BRT • Accessingthe core is critical • Accessing core areas of cities with all bus systems, there are limitation of width available on road • Most part of the city centre is having road widths ranging from 16-24 meters Consideration of mini systems as an alternative for accessing core areas Required RoW for mini bus systems mini Buses 20-25 capacity 6 X 2 (l x w in m) 5.5 m 6 m mini Bus Lane

  23. Inner City Transit Plan - RoW Salatwada Route Dandia Bazaar – Sursagar – NyayMandir – Kirtistambh – Dandia Bazaar (3km) Macchipit Kothi X Rd. Raopura X Rd. Fatehpura X Rd. Sursagar Dandia Bazaar Mandavi Gate NyayMandir BRT corridor Mini BRT feeder corridor Right of way Laxmivilas Palace Jn. < 12 m 12m 14m Chokhnadiveg market 16m 18m Madanjhapa >18m

  24. Exploring spaces Mini Bus 18m Row – Two way

  25. Just not bus and road,It encompasses….. For Vadodara, BRTS is not only about bus and road! • Urban Renewal • Create mobility options • Quality Infrastructure • Education and enforcement • Traffic discipline • Work culture (Training & recruitment) • Development of accessory facilities

  26. Other initiatives Lake front development Sursagar Lake Converting assets into high quality public spaces

  27. Other initiatives Revitalizing Old city

  28. Other initiatives River Development Vishwamitri near Kala Ghoda Example: Sabarmati River Front

  29. Status today and way forward... • Landuse and activity survey completed • Topography survey completed for selected corridors • Operations and route rationalization under process • Setting up and initialize household survey • Design the Bus shelter and other infrastructure facilities
