List of bus rapid transit systems

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of bus rapid transit (BRT) systems that are either currently in operation or have begun construction. The term "BRT" has been applied to a wide range of bus services. In 2012, the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) published a "BRT Standard" to make it easier to standardize and compare different bus services. Currently, TransJakarta is the longest BRT route in the world with approximately 230.9 km length connecting the Indonesian capital city.

Africa[edit]

Morocco[edit]

  • Marrakech : 4 lines, opening November 2016.

Nigeria[edit]

  • Lagos, Nigeria : Lagbus In service; first BRT operational in Africa. Government is building a BRT system for the Lagos Mega City Area. The first phase of the project has been completed.

[2] [3] It is expected operate on eight routes on special BRT Lanes running through the city but will expand its operation.

First phase of the Lagos BRT to run from Mile 12 through Ikorodu Road and Funsho Williams Aveğnue up to CMS is now in operation (officially commissioned on March 17, 2008).

It is projected that the system will carry up to 10,000 passengers per direction per hour during peak travel hours.

The LAMATA BRT corridor is about 22 kilometres in length.[1]

Two operators, NURTW Cooperative and LAGBUS, a Lagos State Government owned Asset Management Company are contributing about 180 high capacity buses for the implementation of the first phase Mile 12 to CMS BRT Lite system.

It is the cheapest to develop in the world costing only $1.6 million/km for the 22-km route. Cost of first corridor (Mile 12 to CMS): N4.5 billion (~US$35 million). This includes elevated segregation barriers, road repairs on bus and service lanes, desilting of blocked drainage channels and provision of bus stops.

South Africa[edit]

  • Cape Town: The City's MyCiTi BRT system started operations in May 2010, just before the 2010 World Cup. Its first service was a shuttle from the Airport to the CBD. The initial Phase 1A trunk and feeder services started operating in May 2011. It is expected that the remainder of Phase 1A construction will be complete in 2014 and 1B in 2015.[2]
  • George: The Go George BRT system began operation in August 2015.[3]
  • Johannesburg: The Rea Vaya (meaning "we are moving") The first phase (phase 1A) was opened to the public on 30 August 2009. Expansion of BRT system is under construction and in many cases both the stations and roadworks have either been completed or are in the final stages. The system was partially opened for the 2010 World Cup with the full system linking majority of Johannesburg from Soweto in the south to beyond Sandton in the north. Buses include those able to use both the BRT stations and general bus stops as well to act as feeders for the network, others are articulated and can use the BRT stations only.[4][5] Just like most of the current transport projects, the system will be implemented into phases. Phase 1 of the estimated R2-billion project, which is now reaching the end of the operational planning phase, will run arti-culated ‘right-of-way’ buses along dedicated median bus lanes in both directions across Johannesburg by 2010, covering almost half of Johannesburg.[6] The 120-km Phase 1 route will include 150 stations, eight terminals and six depots. Phase 1A, comprising a 40-km route with 48 stations, will be completed by April 2009, ahead of the FIFA Confederations Cup, while Phase 1B will add 86 km and 102 stations to the system ahead of the 2010 World Cup. According to the City of Johannesburg website, one of the most important aspects of this new system is that it will be fully integrated with other transport networks. Rea Vaya will not be competing with other transport systems such as the South African Rail Commuter Corporation or the Gautrain.[7]
  • Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa: A BRT system is being implemented in the city for the 2010 World Cup.[8] At the moment, the bus lanes are being built throughout the city. Buses are being built by Marcopolo.
  • Tshwane: A Re Yeng meaning [Let's Go]. Construction began in July 2012 and as of that time.[9] The system was to be operational from five in the morning to midnight.[10]
  • Rustenburg: The Yarona (meaning "it is ours") BRT system is under construction. The initial Phase 1A trunk and feeder services expected to launch during 2016.[11]

Tanzania[edit]

  • Dar-es-Salaam has already started constructing a highway for bus rapid transit system in place. 27 km have been constructed in the major city of Dar es Salaam Morogoro Road.

Uganda[edit]

  • Kampala, Uganda: Planning to introduce BRT system in Kampala by 2014. Pioneer Easy Buses Company started public bus service in Kampala with an estimated 100 buses each with a 60-passenger capacity (30 seated and 30 standing), acquired from China.

Asia[edit]

Bangladesh[edit]

China[edit]

Beijing BRT Line 1. Note the doors on the left-hand side of the bus -- the BRT line uses central island platforms for most of its route.

More than 30 projects are being implemented or studied in China in some big cities. BRT systems with light blue background are not yet operational but under construction.

Kunming developed China's first BRT system starting in 1999.[12] There are also systems operating in Beijing (2005 with 3 routes over 34.5 km, 60 stations and 4 terminals), Shanghai (2005), Guangzhou (2010) (1 route 22.5 km with 26 stations), Hangzhou (2006 with 2 routes over 18.8 km, 50 stations), Chongqing (2007 with 1 route over 6 km, 9 stations and 1 terminal), Dalian (2007), and Xiamen (1 route on 38.2 with 31 stations). As of 2008, there were half-a-dozen BRT systems in different stages of implementation.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Lines in operation counts the number of main lines only.
  2. ^ Stations connected by transfers are counted as one station, unless otherwise noted.
  3. ^ Network length refers to track length and lines that share track are counted only once.
  4. ^ Running on the Nan Zhongzhouxian (South Central Axis Line), the line terminates at Qianmen and Demaozhuang.
  5. ^ There are significant sections that are on dedicated elevated roads. BRT one 33.4 km, BRT 1 Interchange 18.7 km, BRT 2 15.3 km.

Hong Kong[edit]

In Hong Kong, bus lanes and bus-only roads are designated extensively. Some roads, including Des Vœux Road Central, Caine Road (westbound), King's Road (eastbound) are open only to buses and minibuses. Bus routes serving these roads do not compete with other vehicles for road space. However, there is no bus rapid transit for specific roads and stations in Hong Kong.

Philippines[edit]

  • Cebu City: Cebu Bus Rapid Transit System (planned) [22] It is expected to become the first operational Bus Rapid Transit project in the Philippines when it becomes operational late 2014. The 16 kilometre route traverses Cebu City from Bulacao in the south-west to Talamban in the north-east, linking the following key destinations; Central Business District, Capitol Site, Ayala Shopping Mall and a proposed tributary to SM Shopping Mall. A spur to the 300-hectare Cebu South Reclamation Project (SRP) is also planned as developers Filinvest seek to integrate BRT provision into their development plans.[23]

Taiwan[edit]

Thailand[edit]

  • Bangkok: Bangkok BRT, a system running 16.5 kilometers from Sathon to Ratchapruek. Only 1 out of 5 lines is operating.
    A bus at the Sathon Terminus, Bangkok, Thailand
    The first route starts from Sathon running along Narathiwat Ratchanakharin Rd., then turns right at Rama III Rd., crossing the Chao Phraya River at Rama III Bridge and follows Ratchadaphisek Rd. before turning right at Ratchahruek Rd at the end of its route.

At the Sathon-Narathiwat Ratchanakharin interestion, there is a walkway connecting BRT Sathon with BTS Chong Nonsi station. The Bangkok BRT started operating on 15 May 2010 on a free-trial basis.

Vietnam[edit]

A Hanoi BRT 01 (Line 99) bus at the Kim Ma terminus, Hanoi, Vietnam
  • Hanoi: Hanoi BRT, a 14.7 km-long system, running from Kim Mã bus terminal in downtown to Yên Nghĩa bus terminal in the southern suburbs. There are plans to extend it to Hoàn Kiếm Lake, but it never happened.

The line officially opened in 31 December 2016, with an 1-month free trial. The Hanoi Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is one of the components of Hanoi Urban Transport Development Project which has been approved by Hanoi People's Committee at Decision 1837/QĐ-UBND dated May 10, 2007. This World Bank funded ODA project is an important step in improving the city's urban transportation network and strengthening public transport capacity. The Hanoi BRT officially put into operation on December 31, 2016.

Europe[edit]

Belgium[edit]

  • Liege in Belgium also has a busway, which was featured on a video made by the UK Transport Research Lab. [5].

Germany[edit]

  • Essen: Guided busses use a busway in the middle of a motorway. Formerly, these guided buses also operated the tram tunnel using dual-mode busses which got their power from overhead wires in the tunnel. Due to technical problems and to avoid congestion of the tram route, service in the tunnel was abandoned.

As it is run by TVR, a kind of articulated buses, there's a controversy to design it as a LRT or BRT sustem. Two more routes are planned probably not using the TVR as previously planned and with parts not segregated from traffic.
  • Nantes: Busway (line 4) and Chronobus (7 lines in service, 3 in project)(about 600,000 Inh. in the built up area), was the second city to implement a BRT called BusWay at the end of December 2006 extending on 5 km with several P+R and a bus every 5 mn at peak. It is operated by specific branded articulated buses and ticketing machines are located at each station. The patronage was averaging 19,000 per day by December 2006 and 28,000 per day in 2010.
  • Nîmes: Line T1 "Tango+"
  • Rennes: Chronostar line 4 (C1, C5 and C9 in project)
  • Rouen: 3 TEOR lines (about 400,000 Inh. in the built up area) with TEOR was the first real BRT system implemented in France in the late 90's and is still in extension in 2007 with new dedicated lanes in central city and partial dedicated lanes in the suburbs. It's made of 3 routes (70% bus only) and more than 15 km expecting transporting more than 53 000 persons a day in 2007.
  • Strasbourg: line G (Gare Centrale <> Espace Européen de l'Entreprise)
  • Saint-Nazaire: Hélyce
  • Toulouse: Toulouse BRT
  • Tours: Line 2 Tempo

Paris region[edit]

In service:

  • Créteil "TVM" operated by RATP is a tangential BRT linking the RER A, B, C, D, metro line 8 and tramway line T7 in southern Paris suburbs. It was the second BRT implemented in France in the 80s even though, in Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, for political reasons, there's still no bus lanes through this conservative city.
  • Créteil "393" also operated by RATP is an 11 km long line which was open in 2011. Like the TVM (see above) the line linking the southern Paris suburbs in the district (département) of Val de Marne (94). By the way "393" line share the bus lane and stations with "TVM" for 5 km. This line serve the metro line 8 and recently build districts or districts under construction/redevelopment. The transport authority (STIF) plan to extend the line by 2020 to Orly Airport and as well to link RER C, tramway line T7, and in the future metro line 14 (2024) and HSR station (TGV).
  • Corbeil-Essonnes "TZen 1" opened in 2011 this line connect two branches of the RER D and make enable a public transport access to the recently developed city of Sénart and her business/commercial parks.
  • Évry One of the new towns built in the southern part of suburban Paris was probably the first Busway implemented in France in the late '70s . Still operating, it was completely segregated from other traffic in the central area by being elevated. Moreover, this system is still operated with conventional buses and articulated buses and not branded. Also, ticketing is sold into the bus or in specific places but not at the stations.

Under construction or planned:

  • "TZen 2" Sénart-Trait d'Union → Melun-Place de la Gare.

This line will be opened in 2020, it will links Sénart and Melun.

  • "TZen 3" Paris-Porte de Pantin → Livry-Gargan.

Opening in 2020. This project fills a lack of performant and modern public transport in this area. It will also allow a transformation of the highway to an urban boulevard (more green spaces, more spaces for pedestrians, bike lanes, more crosswalks).

  • "TZen 4" Corbeil-Essonnes RER → Grande Borne.

This line will link many disadvantaged districts (poor neighborhoods) to RER D line, in fact the BRT line will be in correspondence with RER D at five interchange stations. This BRT project will greatly increase mobility to neighborhoods with high unemployment. It is scheduled to open in 2017.

  • "TZen 5" Paris-Bibliothèque François Mitterrand → Choisy le Roi RER.

This line is scheduled to open in 2020 it serve a multi-centennial industrial district with a lot of urban redevelopment projects (offices, apartments). It will complete and link the actual network (RER C, Tramway 3a, metro line 14, BRT "TVM" & "393").

Netherlands[edit]

Spain[edit]

Sweden[edit]

These are cities with specifically designed or branded main bus lines, with dedicated bus lanes along some of the route sections.[citation needed]

  • Göteborg: Stombussar (sv) Four bus lines, named 16-19, with high regularity, about 3 – 10 minutes. The buses are marked on the tram map, not the bus map, and has some rules in common with trams, like all door available for entrance. The routes usually share right of way with trams or having their own busway, and generally try to avoid congestion with cars.
  • Stockholm: Blåbussar (sv) (Blue buses). Four bus lines, named 1-4, with high regularity 5–10 minutes, and higher priority than other buses. The buses are blue painted while normal buses are red. The routes try to avoid congestion with cars, but has more congestion than many other systems called bus rapid transit.
  • Malmö: Huvudlinjer (sv) (Main lines) Eight lines, named 1-8, with the regularity of about 7–8 minutes on weekdays.
  • Jönköping: Citybussarna (sv) Three lines, named 1-3, with the regularity of about 10 minutes most of the day.
  • Örebro: Stombussar (sv)
  • Linköping: Stomlinjer (sv)

Turkey[edit]

  • Istanbul: Metrobus between TUYAP and Söğütlüçeşme, the first full-service bus rapid transit system of the country. It features a fully separated right-of the way without any single contact point with other traffic, except while crossing the Bosphorus Bridge, and off-bus fare collection.
  • Denizli: Mixed-traffic BRT application.
  • Malatya: Trambus is a BRT system using bi-articulated trolleybuses. System is mixed-traffic.

United Kingdom[edit]

  • Belfast: Under construction. The 5.5-mile (9 km) EWAY and 6-mile (10 km) WWAY routes are now being built. Two shorter routes – the CITI through the Titanic Quarter and a connecting city centre loop, are planned. The EWAY and WWAY routes may be completed before the end of 2017 or in 2018.[28]
  • Bristol: Bristol City Council in conjunction with the West of England Partnership proposes MetroBus BRT routes from Ashton Vale to Temple Meads, the North Fringe of Bristol to Hengrove Park, and the A370 Long Ashton bypass to Hengrove Park.[29]
  • Hampshire: South East Hampshire Bus Rapit Transit between Gosport and Fareham, Hampshire: A 2.8-mile (4.5 km) bus-only road along the former Fareham–Gosport line railway has been opened from Titchborne Way, Gosport to Redlands Lane, Fareham as Phase 1 of a wider scheme. Services are run by First Hampshire & Dorset under the "Eclipse" branding.
  • Bradford: 1 mile (2 km) of guided busway and a further 0.6 miles (1 km) of un-guided bus lanes created to ease congestion on the busy and congested Manchester Road route into and out of the City Centre.
  • Cambridgeshire: Guided Busway runs in a north-west direction from Milton Road to St Ives. Separate Guided Busway runs in a south direction from the station to Trumpington P&R site. Opened 2011. See Cambridgeshire Guided Busway.
  • Coventry: project in study
  • Crawley: Fastway
  • Leeds: guided busway along York Road A64 road
  • Manchester: Leigh-Salford-Manchester Bus Rapid Transit, from Leigh and Atherton to Manchester via Tyldesley and Ellenbrook. The 29-stop scheme totals 14 miles (22 km) and uses part of a former railway line to form a 4 miles (7 km) guided busway together with pedestrian, cycle lane and bridleway. It then joins the East Lancashire Road running in a dedicated bus lanes.[30]
  • Sheffield: Approved
  • Swansea: Swansea FTR Metro – partially segregated, specialised BRT vehicles, on-board payment to customer care attendant, runs every 15 minutes 7am – 7pm (then conventional bus). Planned and designed by Arup.

Mexico[edit]

United States[edit]

Before it even had the name, Bus Rapid Transit first got major backing in the United States with the rise of federal funding for urban mass transportation during the 1960s. The first exclusive busway in the United States was the El Monte Busway, an exclusive bus lane between El Monte and Los Angeles, California. It opened in 1973. Today, American BRT initiatives receive a great deal of support from the Federal Transit Administration. Planned BRT lines are now eligible to be included in the FTA's New Starts program, which was formerly reserved only for rail projects.

That notwithstanding, the FTA, in announcing its New Starts for 2005, has rated the New Britain-Hartford Busway (Connecticut) "Recommended" but Phase III of the MBTA's Silver Line BRT project "Not Recommended" based on "MBTA's unreasonable operating cost assumptions." This implies that BRT will be subject to the same scrutiny as rail projects, though (also as with rail projects) the FTA will work with the localities to see if projects can be brought into compliance with requirements.

Additional notes[edit]

  • Bogotá has opened in 2000 a segregated four-lane BRT system, the TransMilenio. Maximum peak-load capacity on the busiest line is 45,000 passengers per direction per hour (ppdph).[48] The system uses modular median stations that serve both directions of travel, which enable pre-paid, multiple-door, level boarding.[48] Average dwell time is 24 seconds. Trunk line termini have integrated bicycle parking (fare card opens gate to secure bike parking). Two lanes in each direction permits "Quickways" which allow local service (500- 750m apart) on the inside lane, coupled with express service (skipping 4-5 stations at a time).[49]
  • Pereira, Megabús opened In 2006.
  • Barranquilla, Barranquilla's Transmetro opened in 2010.
