Economics of Bus Priority-a Study for MMRDA at JVLR and BKC Back

Location: JVLR and BKC, Mumbai
Year: 2013 & 2015


For this study we measured the travel time, number of passengers, frequency of buses for BEST, private buses as well as other vehicles.

The large proportion of buses in the total traffic is convincing enough to suggest that bus as a priority will largely benefit not only the large proportion of passengers travelling by BEST and other private buses, but with the discipline and lane management, it will also reduce travel time for other vehicles such as cars, taxies and autos.
