THE MADRAS BUS STUDY. IN: URBAN TRANSPORT IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES: LESSONS IN INNOVATION

Principal elements of work to be undertaken during this study were: (a) a detailed study of the current route network to minimise the operating costs while not decreasing the quality of service provided; (b) a review of current manning practices, fare structures and ticketing methods; (c) an evaluation of current operating procedures; and (d) a brief examination of bus stop design and location in relation to delays encountered by buses at bus stops. The focus of the study was on route rationalization; the other elements of bus operation were examined only briefly, concentration being placed on those aspects of direct concern to route planning and operation.
