Mysuru Transport Infrastructure

Quote:
KSRTC (Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation) will soon be implementing the intelligent transport system (ITS) for Mysore city under GEF (Global Environment Fund) – SUTP (Sustainable Urban Transport Programme), the initiative by World Bank.



The overall scope of implementation will consist of design, development, testing, installation, commissioning, training, operations, and management of facilities, for a period of three years by the winning bidder. The project plan covers 500 buses, 80 bus stops, and 10 bus terminals. It will have several components including vehicle tracking system, central control station, passenger information management system, communication sub system, travel demand management, incident and emergency management system, operational and maintenance specification and fleet management system. Core technologies include geographical positioning system (GPS), electronic display systems, and information & communication technologies. The cost of the project is Rs.19.13 crores that covers the capital costs and three years’ operating costs with a project contingency of 5%.

ITS in Mysore aims to bring about a synergetic transformation in the commuter experience, through a convergence of technologies. It has many benefits, including the reduction of commuter waiting time, fuel consumption, emissions, traffic congestion, and operational costs. It will increase the accessibility of the system, safety of users, and improve traffic efficiency, environmental quality, energy efficiency, and economic productivity.

Urban transport: city may emerge as model
Quote:
Shankar Bennur

World Bank has chosen the city for its ambitious project

Sustainable Urban Transport Project to be implemented in the city

‘The project in Mysore will focus on intelligent transport system’


MYSORE:
Mysore may soon emerge as a model for other Indian cities and perhaps for some European cities too in development of sustainable urban transport modes.

For, the World Bank has chosen Mysore along with four other cities for its ambitious project on sustainable urban transport.

The World Bank and the Government of India signed an agreement in the first week of the month to promote sustainable urban transport in five cities under the Sustainable Urban Transport Project (SUTP).

Other cities

The other cities chosen for implementing the project are Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad in Maharashtra, Indore in Madhya Pradesh and Naya Raipur in Chhattisgarh.

Managing Director of the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) Gaurav Gupta told The-Hindu that the Rs. 21-crore project to be implemented here would be partly funded by the World Bank.

Funds

While the World Bank would provide Rs. 9 crore, the Union Ministry of Urban Development would provide Rs. 12 crore under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) for the project.

Incidentally, Mysore is the second city in the State after Bangalore to be identified for implementing projects under the JNNURM.

“Different kinds of sustainable urban transport models will be tried in cities identified for the project. The project in Mysore will focus on intelligent transport system using technologies such as global positioning system (GPS) and geographical information system (GIS),” Mr. Gupta said. It would be a “demonstration project” for capacity building in urban transport. The entire fleet of city service buses in Mysore would be fitted with GPS devices. Passenger information system using GPS and GIS was also proposed, under which information on the arrival time of buses at a particular bus-stand would be displayed on electronic display systems put up at the stop, he said.

The agency for installing GPS and GIS devices and other equipment would be identified in the next four months. By March 2011, most of the city service buses would be fitted with GPS devices. The impact of the project on the public transport system will be studied and documented.

The idea was to learn from the project and develop sustainable models for urban transport, he said.

“The model to be demonstrated in Mysore has not been experimented anywhere in the country. The Mysore model may be replicated in other Indian cities and even in some European cities with or without modification,” Mr. Gupta said.

Public transport infrastructure in Mysore is undergoing a massive change after the city was included under the JNNURM.

High-tech buses


Mr. Gupta said nearly 150 high-tech buses were plying in the city and new bus-stands were being developed under the JNNURM. The modernised city bus-stand was inaugurated last year.

Once the SUTP was implemented, intra-city services would undergo a sea change as scheduling and tracking of buses on all routes would be done from a central location, he added.

Not only the Granite tiles but also the concrete parking bays of this bus stnad sparkle and reflect (hope they are not so smooth that they become slippery when wet ).

But the cleanliness levels of this bustand astounds - given that it is in India. It clearly indicates that people can also take pride in their city infrastructure given suitable facilities and civic awareness n0t to mention maintenance.

Thanks for the superb pics Akash.

Rs. 1400 Crore Green Urban Transport Project Launched
17:1 IST
Quote:
The Ministry of Urban Development with assistance from Global Environment Facility (GEF), The World Bank and UNDP, has launched a novel Rs.1400 Cr. Green urban transport project called Sustainable Urban Transport Project (SUTP). Under the project green urban transport will be introduced in selected cities to overcome the pollution and other hazards of existing urban transport including traffic congestion impedances for pedestrians. Four such demonstration projects have already been commenced in Pimpri-Chinchwad and Pune (Maharashtra), Indore (Madhya Pradesh), Naya Raipur (Chattisgarh) and Mysore (Karnataka).

Launching the project here today, Union Minister of Urban Development, Shri Jaipal Reddy said that there is urgent need to shift from personalised transport to public transport, the project has been initiated with this objective only. He said that the Government has given very high priority to improved urban transport since the launching of JNNRUM. More than 12,000 buses have been sanctioned for select 60 cities under the mission for the improvement of public transport, efforts for capacity building for the better public transport are also being made. He said that independent transport authority should be set up in each major city for the better governance and planning of public transport. He said that sustainable urban transport project aims at long term strategy to empower planners, decision makers and other professionals by building their capacity, in planning and implementation of Green Urban Transport Project.

Speaking on the occasion, Shri Saugata Roy, Minister of State for Urban Development, appreciated the concept of SUTP and expressed hope that it would go a long way in bringing about a paradigm shift in promoting Green Transport in the country.

The SUTP has been developed with technical assistance from World Bank and UNDP who are also contributing in its implementation by way of loan and grant, together with co-funding from Government of India, the States and the Cities involved. This is the first time that such multiple international funding agencies have come together for a transport project in India.

Under the project Unified Metropolitan Transport Authority will be developed in the cities besides public transport help line, traffic information management control centre, BRT junction operation, bike sharing scheme and some other innovative transport modes.

CITY TO GET SMART BUSES: THE FIRST IN THE COUNTRY
Quote:
Mysore, July 17 (JP)- Will I get a bus now? How long will I have to wait? At which stop will I get a connecting bus? Will there be a seat for me on the bus? Is the bus arriving at my stop an AC or non-AC? What is the fare? What route will this bus take? Will I know the time of arrival of my stop?

All this will be a thing of the past when KSRTC introduces the Intelligent Transport System by August next year. The Intelligent Transport System is based on Global Positioning System (GPS) enabled navigation systems. Each of the buses on different routes will be continuously tracked by a Central Control Station. Passenger Information system will be displayed on LCD screens in the buses, at bus stops and the bus terminals. They will inform the passenger of the expected time of arrival of the buses, where it is headed and the route it is going to take. In short the commuter, whether in the bus, the bus stop or the bus station will know to the minute when his or her bus is due to arrive, whether it is full and when the next bus is due etc.

Gaurav Gupta, Managing Director, KSRTC, speaking to SOM said that the technical consultancy part of the work has been completed and added, ‘now the tendering process has begun. It will take another two months for the tender process to be completed. I expect the work to be completed by early next year.”

When SOM asked whether at least August 15 can be the Liberation Day for the bus commuters of the city, Gupta laughed and said that it may well be. "In fact I expect the new system to be in place by then."

From sources at eGestalt Technologies, the project consultants, the Intelligent Transport System will be coordinated by a Central Control Station that will track the buses which will have vehicle mounted Global Positioning Systems and there will be a constant two-way communication with the driver.

Sources said passenger information system will also be available on the internet. This project will initially cover 185 out of 500 Buses, 80 out of 484 Bus Stops and six Bus Terminals in the City.

Currently, KSRTC operates about 4,217 trips in Mysore through 282 schedules from two depots on 185 routes. It has a fleet strength of 258 resulting in 1.79 lakh passenger trips per day. Mysore has been chosen for this pilot project since it has a high growth rate in traffic density and because it is a medium sized city that has a projected 70 per cent increase in land use profile. The project consultants, eGestalt Technology, head-quartered in Santa Clara (USA) and Bangalore say that a survey conducted by them revealed that almost 89% of the sample population was willing to shift to public transport provided KSRTC operates reliable services through the introduction of ITS.

The KSRTC MD said he hoped that the new people-friendly bus service will "woo a significant population of the self-driven vehicle owner segment to move to a public transport system that will be attractive, convenient, and comfortable, supported by real-time information enroute and help contribute to reducing the road congestion."

ITS IN KSRTC Mysore

KSRTC to introduce ITS in transport services in Mysore

Quote:
India Infoline News Service / 14:30 , Jul 19, 2010

KSRTC is all set to introduce Intelligent Transport System (ITS) in Mysore in its local transport services. The project is funded by The World Bank and the consultants to this project, eGestalt Technologies, have been the forerunners in a number of innovative segments in Transport, health, Government, SEZs, Information Security etc.


Intelligent Transport System (ITS) solution provides for a dynamic passenger information system available on public displays in bus stops, bus terminals and even on the internet. One could plan to take a bus knowing in advance the exact time that the bus would arrive at the bus stand, the availability of seats, and the time it would take to reach the destination.


These new services based on GPS enabled navigation systems and supported by information and Communication Technologies will also help KSRTC ( Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation) in running their operations most efficiently. Supported by a two communication voice facility, the Driver and the Central Control station could be in constant touch on issues such as road traffic-jams, incidents and accidents, route diversion in case of emergencies, etc.

Large-screen TVs will give real-time information on intra-city buses in Mysore

The project on public transport system is expected to cost Rs. 21 crore

416 buses deployed for city services will be fitted with GPS devices

Ambitious plan:The new project in Mysore will focus on intelligent transport system using technologies such as the Global Positioning System and Geographical Information System.

MYSORE: With the Passenger Information System (PIS) set to become a reality, large-screen televisions will soon greet passengers at bus-stops in Mysore city, giving real-time information on the arrival of intra-city buses, similar to the flight information system in airports.

All 416 buses, including Volvo and Marcopolo deployed for city services, will be fitted with the Global Positioning System (GPS) device to track their movement, and the information on their arrival time at the respective bus-stops will be displayed on television screens.

The initiative is the first of its kind in Karnataka.

World Bank-funded


The World Bank had chosen Mysore, along with four other cities in India, for its ambitious Sustainable Urban Transport Project. The World Bank and the Union Government signed an agreement recently to promote sustainable urban transport in five cities.

The project in Mysore will focus on intelligent transport system using technologies such as GPS and Geographical Information System (GIS).

The project in Mysore is expected to cost Rs. 21 crore of which Rs. 9 crore will be provided by the World Bank, and the remaining by the Union Ministry of Urban Development under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM).

Public transport infrastructure in Mysore has been undergoing a massive change after the city was included under the JNNURM.

The Mysore urban division of the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation has identified 105 busiest bus-stops (based on passenger traffic) to establish the PIS. While 36 bus-stops have shelters, the remaining ones will get them soon in order to equip them for the hi-tech facility.

“The identified bus shelters will be remodelled to install the system. A large television monitor will be installed inside the shelters, which will display the arrival time of buses on different routes. The passengers will get real-time information, which is expected to bring down waiting time,” said Divisional Controller M.N. Srinivas.

Tenders invited


He told The Hindu that tenders had been invited to implement the ambitious project and bids would be finalised on August 3. The winning agency would run the project for three years.

Sources said the impact of the project on the public transport system will be studied and documented as it is a demonstration project. The objective is to learn from the experiment and develop sustainable models for urban transport.
The Hindu

Hope the bids are finalised as early as possible on aug 3.

Ashoka wants Mysore to be a model transport city

Quote:
TNN, Jul 24, 2010, 10.30pm IST

MYSORE: The city's transport infrastructure is in for some giant gains. Mysore is getting an intelligent transport system which will help commuters get information on city buses on real-time basis even as the transit centres are beginning to get into shape.

Transport minister R Ashoka on Saturday pledged to gets funds from the grants being sanctioned to the government from the World Bank. This, he said, is to make Mysore No 1 in transport infrastructure in the nation. Mysore has bagged the second slot as the cleanest city in India. "We want it to be No 1 when it comes to transport infrastructure," he said inaugurating a transit centre at Naidu Nagar." The minister has a dream: "The latest technologies devised for efficient transport in the world should be in Mysore. I want to develop it as a model transport city."

The transit centre is built with funding from JNNURM. The city is getting another five such transit centres to allow passengers have easy access to city buses. Announcing the launch of GPS-based intelligent transport system in a year, Ashoka said six bus stands and some 100 bus shelters in the city will get information on movement of city buses. The WB grants for the better transport system is being utilized for this, he stated.

Meanwhile, MP Vishwanath asked the minister to operate mini buses for convenience of school children. Referring to the action against the over-loaded school vehicles by the RTO, the MP said the parents will utilize the public transport if it is offered.

March ahead Mysore......
