Roadmap for improving city bus systems in India

Sector Systems and Planning
Undertaken By Delhi Integrated Multi Modal Transit Systems (DIMTS)
Undertaken By base All India
Year 2015

City bus systems are at various levels of performance in terms of their operational, planning and management practices. While some cities have not been able to operate the entire fleet available with them, other cities are using advanced information technology based systems to optimise their operations and manage the fleet. Also, bus operations in all cities are challenged by the lack of adequate supporting infrastructure like bus stops, terminals, depots and lack of trained man power. A wide range of interventions are required to improve the overall performance of city bus systems. We have supported efforts to identify the key challenges faced by various bus operating agencies, and develop a roadmap for improving their performance.
