Evaluation of Socio-Economic Impact of City Bus Services in Developing Countries

City bus services encounter distinctive challenges in planning, maintaining and operating their services in developing countries. However, most of the studies are not structured in a simple manner and cannot find significant comparative information for socio-economic impact of city bus services. Therefore, this study presents a methodology for comparative evaluation of socio-economic impact of alternate city bus services. The methodology proposed in this study is also illustrated using a bus rapid transit service (BRTS) in Bhopal city. It is expected that this study will be useful to take significant decisions before implementation of new services, and performance improvement of existing city bus services.
