Presentation Transcript

  1. The Results of Selected BRT Projects 2:00 – 3:20 p.m. Walt Kulyk Director, FTA Office of Mobility Innovation (Moderator)

  2. Session Presentations • “San Pablo Rapid”, Jon Twichell • “Results of Port Authority’s Busways”, David E. Wohwill, AICP • “Implementing BRT: The Results”, John Bonsall • “A Better Transport for a Better Quality of Living”, Luciano Aimar

  3. Jon Twitchell • Master’s in Public Policy from UC Berkeley • Transportation Planning Manager at AC Transit • Project Manger for the San Pablo Rapid • Two decades as a transportation consultant

  4. San Pablo Rapid

  5. AC Transit • Service Area 364 square miles • Population 1,415,129 • Bus lines 125 • Bus Fleet 650 • Bus stops 6,500 • Annual service miles 21 million • Daily Ridership 206,259 AC Transit buses connect with 9 other public and private bus systems, 21 BART stations, 6 Amtrak stations, and 3 ferry terminals.

  6. 2001 to 2003 • Daily Ridership • From 237,171 to 206,259 average daily trips • Decrease by 13% • Platform Hours • 7379 hours before June 2003 • 7088 hours after June 2003 • 6420 hours after Dec 2003 • Decrease by 13% since June 2003

  7. Total AC Transit Ridership

  8. AC Transit Definition of Rapid Bus • Headway based schedule w/ maximum 12-minute headways • Stops one-half to two-thirds of a mile apart, on average • As many stops far side as possible • Traffic signal coordination, transit signal priority, queue jump lanes • Recognizable shelters, with Rapid branding and bus arrival information signs • Recognizable vehicles, with Rapid branding and features which reduce dwell time.

  9. Service Changes for 72R • Headway-based schedule • 12-minute peak frequency on top of local service • 26 Rapid stops at major intersections • 0.54 miles apart on average • Far-side stops • 20% time savings calculated into schedule

  10. Marketing - Branding

  11. Technology Improvements for 72R • 3M’s Opticom Transit Signal Priority System • Coordination and re-timing of traffic signals • Addition of queue-jump lanes • Next Bus type Bus Arrival Information System in conjunction with Orbital A.V.L. system • 40’ three-door, low-floor Van Hool buses

  12. Real-Time Bus Arrival Information

  13. Line 72R - SAN PABLO RAPID BUSImplemented June 30, 2003

  14. 72R vs 72L • 72L from 6 - 9 AM & 3 - 7 PM (Total 7 hours) • 72R runs from 6 AM to 7 PM (Total 13 hours) • Direct Comparison of 72R to 72L trips, from 6 - 9 AM & 3 - 7 PM • Goals • 20% decrease in running time • 25% ridership increase • Results • 17% decrease in actual running time • 65.8 % ridership increase

  15. Corridor Before & After 72R

  16. Corridor Before & After 72R

  17. Survey Responses

  18. Corridor Ridership Gain Due to 72R • Local Bus Ridership Loss or Transfer = 3,030 (Lines 72 & 73/72M) • Percent of 72R Riders transferring from 72, 73, 72L = 40.5% (which is 73.3% of 55.2 %) • Corridor Ridership Loss = 1,802 (which is 59.5% of 3,030) • Percent Corridor Loss = 13.9% 1,802 divided by 12,926 (Total ridership before 72R) • Corridor Ridership Gain due to 72R = 20.3% from 13.9% (local ridership loss) plus 6.4% (total corridor increase)

  19. Survey Responses

  20. Performance Survey (All values in percent)

  21. Future Actions • Complete TSP Evaluation • Complete NextBus Installations • Conduct Fall 2004 Study and Prepare Final Report • Begin Implementation of International/Telegraph Rapid Bus - Service Starts Early 2006
