Gaurav Dane [3] | Ankita Goyal | H. S. Goliya

Abstract: Indore is a fast growing industrial city of Madhya Pradesh. To meet the large demand and improve the capacity and productivity of buses, ICTSL has proposed to plan, to develop and operate Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) in Indore. Bus Rapid Transit System is a new form of public transportation which is an emerging approach of using buses as an improved high-speed transit system. Bus Rapid Transit involves coordinated improvements in a transit systems infrastructure, equipment, operations, and technology that give preferential treatment to buses on urban roadways. We are selecting MR-10 Road corridor for our case study of integrated planning of BRTS. Now a days MR-10 area of Indore is developing rapidly. To provide faster and effective transit services, schedule is made for transit units going to be run on that route. The schedule is made for 14 hours in a day (700 AM To 09 PM) from Radisson Square to Aurobindo Square and vice versa. For finding out schedule of transit units, traffic data are collected at different road sections along the route. The traffic data is then analyzed and traffic flow and passenger flow along the route is taken out. Transit units are provided on the basis of passenger flow at different sections and at different time within a day. Reduction in air and noise pollution is calculated after planning of BRTS.
