It’s estimated that if the entire area of the road is used in a mixed pattern by private and public vehicles then the road is capable of ferrying up to 12,000 passengers per hour. However at the same time a dedicated BRT line would increase that number to 20,000 passengers. This means lesser people in private vehicles and more people in BRT which will automatically result in lesser congestion.
• Create more awareness and hence build more acceptance
• Make people understand that the objective of BRT is more people and not more vehicles
• Increase the length of BRT to at least 15-20 km so that its full benefit can be illustrated for the citizens.
