2 Area : sq.km Population: 1.75 million Third largest city of Gujarat Known as the cultural city of Gujarat To Savli To Mumbai / Surat To Ahmedabad To Waghodia To Ajwa To Dabhoi To Padra Source: Vadodara Development Plan Vadodara Today

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 Ring – Radial Network 1 ring 7 radials Vadodara Road Network 7.5km 7.3km 4 km 1.5km 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 Network selection Roadway & Infrastructure Design Accessing inner city BRT Planning for Vadodara

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

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

14 VITCOS routes and proposed BRT

15 Phase I Phase II Baroda Dairy Waghodia Road R.C. Dutt Road Old Padra Road Makarpura Raj Mahel Road kothi Susan circle GEB BSNL T Jn. Labor Chokdi Kalaghoda Lal baug Kareli baug VIP rd Nizampura Fatehgunj Chhani Gotri BRTS network details and phasing GSFC Phase 1 – 34km Phase 2 – 26km Total Network – 60km First phase through city centre covering major destinations like railway station, MS University, Makarpura GIDC Second phase extends phase 1 corridors into outer suburbs Akota – Dandia Bazaar

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

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

18 Narrow Right of ways at places (upto m) Location of Heritage Gates On street vending and informal market places Issues

20 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

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

22 Kothi X Rd. Kala Bhavan Jn. Laxmivilas Palace Jn. Madan jhapa Raopura X Rd. Fatehpura X Rd. Chokhnadi veg market Mandavi Gate Salatwada Macchipit Sursagar Nyay Mandir BRT corridor Old city access routes One way Mixed Traffic routes Inner City Transit Management Plan Option 3 : Traffic Management Plan

23 Required RoW for mini bus systems 5.5 m 6 m mini Bus Lane Accessing the 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 meters mini Buses capacity 6 X 2 (l x w in m) Consideration of mini systems as an alternative for accessing core areas Exploring options for accessing inner city Option 4 : mini BRT

24 Kothi X Rd. Dandia Bazaar Laxmivilas Palace Jn. Madan jhapa Raopura X Rd. Fatehpura X Rd. Chokhnadi veg market Mandavi Gate Salatwada Macchipit Sursagar Nyay Mandir BRT corridor 12m 14m 16m 18m < 12 m >18m Right of way Route Dandia Bazaar – Sursagar – Nyay Mandir – Kirti stambh – Dandia Bazaar (3km) Inner City Transit Plan - RoW Mini BRT feeder corridor

25 Exploring spaces Mini Bus 18m Row – Two way

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

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

28 Other initiatives Revitalizing Old city

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

30 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
