Developing public transport system creation and development concepts

3 November 2016, 18:56

One of Laboratory competences is to develop the concepts of creation and development of public transport systems, including the development of bus rapid transit and light rail transit systems.

BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) is the world’s fastest-developing public transport system.

In Russian cities, there is a huge potential for creating them. Such systems are usually based on the principles of public-private partnership and may be cost-effective, provided a competent design of the route network.

Using evolutionary algorithms for creating optimal networks allows the Laboratory to develop the most profitable routes.

Completed projects:

  • Developing a BRT system for Krasnoyarsk as part of creating a development concept for Krasnoyarsk transport system
  • Evaluating BRT system launch modes in 9 corridors in Moscow based on mobile data analytics
