1 Development of the Indore Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) System
A Learning Experience Chandramauli Shukla (CEO, AICTSL) 7th September 2012 Presented by: Amit Bhatt Atal Indore City Transport Services Ltd. (AICTSL)

2 Project Basics Initiated 2007 Length of route 11.6 km Road section
Niranjanpur Project Basics Initiated 2007 Length of route 11.6 km Road section 31.6 / 60 metres System type Closed Median stations Stations 21 Number of buses 50 Type of bus 12 m long with AC 900 mm Semi Low Floor 245 hp, BS III engine Completion November 2012 Rajiv Gandhi

3 ‘PLANNING’ more important than ‘PLAN’
Initial cost estimate = INR Cr. (Plan) Included cost of civil works of corridor only Cost ‘EXTRAs’ not planned for Land acquisition Utility laying / shifting Relocation of religious structures Stations Buses ITS (AVLS + AFCS + Signalling) EXTRA Costs amounting to INR 300 Cr.

4 Lack of Strategic Partnerships
Initially Delhi BRT design model followed for Indore However, Delhi BRT turned unsuccessful Ahmedabad BRT introduced – proved huge success Decision to change Indore BRT design to Ahmedabad BRT design model Corridor construction was underway Design change involved re-configuring of utility ducts Further additions to cost and timelines Partnerships with BRT experts at the outset would have avoided such time and money losses

5 Technical Expertise Limited capacity at AICTSL
Adequate technical expertise not available with government to provide assistance / guidance to AICTSL External consultation came with a price-tag

6 Project Publicity Lot of negative publicity received from press and media BRTS blamed for ‘any’ and ‘every’ traffic incident along BRT corridor by media and experts National-level committees throw negative light on Indore project No consultation with AICTSL / IMC Limited awareness among people and media presents great challenges for BRTS

7 Partnership Partnership with EMBARQ India bridged the knowledge gap for the BRT project

8 BRT’s Impact on Urbanisation in Indore
New Malls, Hotels, Hospitals, Corporate Offices etc. have developed since project inception Premium on FAR in commercial buildings presents significant funding generation

9 Transforming Indore… Before After Mangal City

10 Transforming Indore… Before After Niranjanpur

11 After Transforming Indore… Before After Arts and Commerce College

12 Transforming Indore… Before Before After After

13 Transforming Indore… After Before

14 Lack of external funding support
Funding commitments from government sources not received Funding from World Bank for ITS project available, but not flexible to suit the changes over time AICTSL had no other streams of revenue to fund excesses DELAYED

15 Innovations in alternate funding generation
All land acquisition done using Transfer of Develop Rights (TDR) model Savings to the tune of INR Cr. Advertisement rights along entire corridor transferred to AICTSL from IMC Proposed share of Urban Transport Fund (UTF) tax being introduced in Indore Proposed share of Land Value Capture Increased FAR – new building permissions Sale/purchase of property

16 A quick comparison… Parameters Ahmedabad (Ph-1) Delhi (Ph-1 partial)
Indore (Ph-1) System type Closed Open Stations Median Staggered Network length 12.5 km 5.5 km 11.6 km Bus type AC & Non AC AC Technology AFCS, AVLS - AFCS, AVLS, Signalling Accessibility Level boarding Stepped boarding
