4 Description of Feasibility Study Tasks

Chapter 4 – Comprehensive Mobility Plan and Strategic Use of HCBRT

This section should aim at developing an Integrated Transport Plan which implies integration of land use, recreation and urban transport, the role of BRT, as well as the basic institutional framework for coordination.

4.1 Future Travel Demand Scenarios: These would represent the laissez-faire option, as established in the previous section, highlighting the negative aspects that these imply for the population and competitiveness of the city.

4.2 Policy Objectives: The policies relating to future travel needs, as established at the national, regional and local levels, should be set out and the obstacles highlighted when compared with the future scenarios.

4.3 Comprehensive Mobility Plan (CMP): Policy may already be consolidated in a Comprehensive Mobility Plan, which focuses on moving people and not vehicles. The CMP is expected also to integrate land use and transport systems, including mass transit systems on existing major corridors, and to future satellite townships or emerging activity centres (such as Special Economic Zones – SEZs). A summary of such plan can be incorporated into the proposals as an annex. If not, an indication should be made of the current stage of progress and the expected dates for submission.

4.4 Strategic Options of the Use of HCBRT: Within the Comprehensive Mobility Plan the rationale for the strategic use of HCBRT may already have been considered. As a guideline, typical rationales for the introduction of HCBRT were presented in Table 1 of this Toolkit.
