This looks so great. Wish Nairobi would build something similar.

There are seven under consideration.

Addis Abeba is soon to have a new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) that covers one corridor of the city with parliament approving a 50 million euro credit facility secured from Agencé France de Development (AFD), on July 3, 2015.

The first BRT line, also known as the B2 corridor line will cover a total of 16Km, with width ranging from 20m - 40m according to the preliminary and operational feasibility study done by an Indian firm called DMTS.

Yes there are two more lines under consideration. I visualized them in this post

Quote:
It is still active. We currently have a five-phase study we are proposing to the government. We have accomplished the first phase. The direction from the government for future light rail projects is that the lines should go either underground or over a bridge because land is becoming very expensive. Just to give you an idea, Phase Two includes a line from Giorgis passing along Mexico Square, the African Union headquarters to Jommo then connects to Lebu where there is the national railway network. The entire route will be either underground or over a bridge except for some six hundred meters near the AU where it will go at grade. The other line extends from Megenagna-Bole Airport-Wello Sefer-Saris-Jommo then connects to Lebu.
Ride along

Menelik II station is connected via a 400 meter long tunnel. The tunnel portal is located east of Atikilt Tera Station.

Addis Ababa, March 17, 2016 (FBC) - Addis Ababa Road and Transport Bureau has signed an agreement yesterday with three contractors for the design work and construction of the Addis Ababa bus rapid transit (BRT) line.

The design work for the 16 km Wingate –Jemo route will be undertaken at a cost of 64 million birr, while 2 billion birr will be spent for the construction of the road scheduled to be completed within 26 months.

The bureau inked the agreement with the French company, SAFEGE SA, and two local contractors.

Based on Addis Ababa’s Master Plan, seven bus rapid transit lines will be built until 2030, Engineer Fekade Azeze, General Manager of Addis Ababa Roads Authority, said.

According to him, Ethiopia will be the first East African country to have BRT service.

Ethiopia has secured a 50 million Euro loan last April from the French Development Institute for the project.

The project will transform Addis Ababa’s transportation system as well as help to offer sustainable, modern and integrated transportation service in the metropolis.

The buses will be equipped with the state of the art technology and are computer-assisted, it was noted.

The rapid buses will arrive at stations every 2-3 minutes and commuters needs to wait for only 4-5 minutes.

Performance in the first 100 days (September 2015-January 2016)

Quote:
Safe Operation for the Addis Ababa Light Rail for 100 days

Up to the 29th day of last month, the Addis Ababa light rail has been in continual safe operation for 100 days. The total number of commuters has exceeded 8 millions with the highest number of commuter per day reaching 153,000.

The Addis Ababa light rail has been in commercial service since September 20, 2015. The average number of trains per day is 186.9 pairs (94 pairs in the North-South line, 93 pairs in the East-West line). Time interval between trains is between 10 to 20 minutes. According to a joint survey between CREC, CREC Erju co. and Shenzhen Metro, 6642 trains have been dispatched between the 1st day and 28th day of last month. The average number of commuters in this period is 113,000 per day with the highest number reaching 153,500 at the busiest day.
Many thanks to Mr/Ms LaoTze for the translation

If AALRT was located in North America it would be the fifth busiest light rail system after Calgary, Toronto, Guadalajara and Boston with 5791 average daily boardings per mile.

Frequency seems to be limited by available numbers of vehicles. At ten minutes frequency they need about ten trains on each line. If each of these trains consists of two tram-cars during peak hours there are no more vehicles available to increase frequency.

Does anyone know how these passengernumbers compare to what was expected before service began?
Also, how likely is it for more vehicles to be bought? If they could run at double the frequencies you could likely increase passenger numbers quite a bit.

Projected ridership was 100'000 for both routes.

Quote:
Ato Workeneh Gebeyehu, the country's Minister of Transport, says that each day, more than 60,000 people use the north-south and east-west lines that form the first phase of the project; when completed, the railway should carry 100,000 people per day.

Addis Ababa prepares for its first Bus Rapid Transit system

C40 recently partnered with the Addis Ababa Road and Transport Bureau to deliver a two-day workshop to measure the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction benefits for Addis Ababa’s first Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system. A total of 18 representatives from the Addis Ababa Road and Transport Bureau, Transport Authority, Institute of Technology and the Environmental Protection Authority learned how to use available data and make assumptions to demonstrate the impact of BRT’s forecasted operations, construction and manufacturing on emissions.

Addis Ababa has seen many firsts in recent years. In 2015, the city launched the first Light Rail Transit (LRT) in sub-Saharan Africa. In the same year, the city conducted a feasibility study in anticipation of breaking ground on its first BRT system. Construction is currently estimated to start in middle to late 2017.
