Special Plan for Public Transport System on long and short distance, buses will follow a UTS unidirectional traffic system with four doors for men, women and families will have separate doors for getting in and out, almost first time in the world. Economical and safer bus rapid transit.
Bus stops at starting point and on route
Bus stands and front roads infrastructure
School bus, taxi, vans and three wheelers.
For Public Transport
Public Transport System
The main divisions are:
Railway System – Long/Short distance trains, metros, monorails, goods trains.
Goods Carriers - LCVs to heavy duty long trailers.
Village / City Bus service.
Inter-city and Inter-state bus transport.
Private transport such as auto Rickshaw, small/big taxi and rural (Share) taxi.
In the coming years, the roads, bus stops and the buses and taxis will be manufactured as per the standards leading to a very well disciplined and systematic traffic throughout the country. There will be 4 types of taxis as follows:
|1||Share big taxi||To be determined by the local authorities||12|
|2||Share small taxi||To be determined by the local authorities||8|
|3||Private big taxi||With electronic meter||5|
|4||Private small taxi||With electronic meter||5|
Today there is no proper bus/taxi system in our villages. Hence we propose standard micro/mini buses and shared small/big taxis so that the villagers can travel safely. This will also avoid crowding in the buses and travelling will be a comfortable experience. Local government authorities will decide the fare of these buses and taxis. There will be two tone colours for all taxis as follows:
P-1/P-2 type parking system based on odd and even dates is very inconvenient and unsafe. Hence it will be discontinued in the whole country. For adapting the new parking system, dedicated parking areas will be made available. Today we park our two wheelers at a right angle to the road. Consequently, while getting out, a two wheeler has to turn almost through a right angle before taking off. This maneuver is potentially dangerous as there will be a continuous flow of traffic by the side. To avoid this, there will be no right angle/inclined parking on the roads. Right angle/inclined parking will only be permitted in the designated parking areas. There will be PARALLEL PARKING (in-line) on the roads for all the vehicles throughout India including the two wheelers and cycles (Refer To Sketch Gallary). The new parking system includes 2 buses / trucks / cars / taxis in each box. 2/4 rickshaws in each box. 4/6 two wheelers in each box. 8/10 cycles in each box. For two wheelers, left and right parking method will be available
Driving License System
This system needs to be streamlined and strengthened completely. There will be written / oral / practical tests including ‘New road and transport planning of entire India’. Any physically fit citizen of India can apply for a license and the eligibility of age will be 16. Hence these lessons may be introduced in schools and colleges as well. The driving tests will need to be passed by applicants even for renewal of licenses.
Advantage of SPC Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system over existing system
|Sr.No.||Existing BRT||SPC BRT|
|1||The buses run in the middle of the roads disrupting the flow of traffic. Major revamping required resulting huge expenses.||Will run on the left side of the road resulting smoother traffic. Major road modification will not be required|
|2||Lack of standardization give variety in BRT.||Existing wide roads can be converted immediately (with minor changes) into BRT roads with just introducing continuous divider along with BRT lane. e. g. existing 18.29m wide one way or 36.58m wide two way can be converted since it already has a separate bus lane.|
|3||Needs new types of buses with right side doors, resulting new investment.||Existing buses can use. New investment is not required.|
|4||These new types of buses with right side doors require left side doors as well to run on existing routes apart from BRT, resulting in wastage of space in the buses.||New types of left side four door buses can be used for BRT as well as for the existing routes in addition to existing buses resulting in saving of space in all the buses.|
|5||India has a right hand drive & left side traffic system, hence existing bus / bus stops / stands cannot be used. Need to install all new-bus stops/stands/dividers.||Existing bus stops / stands can be used. Needs additional bus stops only on those routes where two way BRT is required on one way road.|
Some Suggestions to educate people
80% advertisement plan: Wherever there will be an advertisement (e.g. on roads, buildings etc.), 20% space will be reserved for the government to display the matter on social reforms and awareness, public health planning/rules etc. Government organizations will be allowed to utilize certain time on televisions, radios and mobile networks to cover social issues. This will also be applicable for newspapers/magazines. These issues may also be added in the respective syllabus to create an early awareness among children. People violating the rules will be penalized/fined based on the severity of the violation. This is necessary to impart discipline and awareness among. For example: violations by parking vehicles in ‘no parking areas’, breaking lane system, carrying out business on the roads (in spite of Chota Parivar) , not following the fast track court’s decision etc. will attract heavy fines and certain punishment, if required. The details of all these fines and punishment will be made available for all to create the awareness. Hoardings, display boards, radios, TVs, cinema halls etc. may be utilized for this purpose
