This Toolkit is Module 2 of the Guidelines and Toolkits for Urban Transport Development, prepared by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Ministry of Urban Development of India. The documents in this toolkit are designed to help decision makers and practitioners in states and municipal governments who are concerned with urban transport development in medium-sized cities in India.
This toolkit focuses on the tasks required for feasibility studies of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and provides case studies/guidelines relating to key issues involved in the development of HCBRT systems within the context of City Development Plans, existing Comprehensive Traffic and Transport Studies and Master Plans.
The toolkit assumes that the Comprehensive Mobility Plan (CMP) has already been prepared, and the strategies and framework for the BRT development are readily available together with the transport demand models. The FS comprises introductory chapters on city profile, traffic and transport conditions, followed by chapters detailing the requirements for a HCBRT project.
