Bogota's rapid bus system 2007 and 2016

This is the transportation system serving Colombia's capital. It has inspired other similar systems in latin america, Canada and there's talk about one in the US and the Netherlands. It is eco-friendly and cost-efficient



Shot at 2007-07-02

2007

Daily passangers - 1.5 million
Stations - 114
Length - 84 km
Buses - 974
Average speed - 27 km/h
Ride cost - 1.300 colombian pesos ($0.66/€0.48)



2016

Daily passangers - 5 million
Length - 388 km



The cost to complete this system is $1 billion, which is very cheap compared to metros that are even longer than the TransMilenio

$1 Billion to build 6 subway lines? How is that possible? Individual lines can cost up to $10 Billion. Cheap labour can only go so far.

it's not a subway. it's a BUS rapid transportation system, which is why it's taking so long (they have to modify roads and they're planting 1,000's of trees as they go).

There are already such systems in the Netherlands, there is the ´Zuidtangent´





And in Almere there is a complete seperate Buslane network next to the normal road network, they are the yellow lines on this map:

I'm glad for those cities. I personally think that these systems give a certain presence to cities. The TransMilenio is an object of pride in Colombia (the 1st of many built and under construction all over Colombia).

Too bad they don't use trolley buses. It would have been more eco-friendly. Would it really be much more expensive to use trolley buses than regular buses, considering the fact that electric buses usually last longer than regular buses?
I thought it would have been obvious for cities that are building BRT and where there is already a trolley-bus network like in Mexico city.

And what's even more "eco-friendly" than trolley buses (which in turn are better than common bus systems) are systems on rails, ergo...

They might build a suspended Monorail. This is how the city might look with it:

well... here's Zagreb... i draw it myself, it could be some redirections, i've seen the picture somewhere in newspaper... this is the plan in next five to ten years. Blue ones are existing tram network, and red ones are planned. LRT is planning but there is no exact image where would it be...

Think the problem with trolley buses is that they normally have a maximum speed of about 50-60km/h, while standard and hybrid buses can reach 80km/h+ (most buses I've seen have speedometers that go up to 125km/h, including articulated ones).

well... honestly, where do public buses go higher than 60 or maybe 70... not only it's impossible between streets but it's not safe for the passengers.

sorry, i just cant help it...i was rummaging through my stuff today and i saw my torn copy of a TTC ride map...and then i had this irresistible urge to make my 'dream proposal' for a Metro Cebu Subway System--again--

here's my first version:


and here's a new one


too far-fetched? well, dreaming is a luxury that we all have...

for those who dont know, Cebu is a metropolis of nearly 2-million people straddled on the eastern coast of the Philippine island of Cebu. It is the second only to Manila--that capital--in terms of importance, and its economy is a formidable rival to the capital
