Opis: Public Transport Planning and Management in Developing Countries - Ashish Verma, Venkata Ramanayya

Developing Countries Have Different Transportation Issues and Requirements Than Developed Countries An efficient transportation system is critical for a country's development. Yet cities in developing countries are typically characterized by high-density urban areas and poor public transport, as well as lack of proper roads, parking facilities, road user discipline, and control of land use, resulting in pollution, congestion, accidents, and a host of other transportation problems. Public Transport Planning and Management in Developing Countries examines the status of urban transport in India and other developing countries. It explains the principles of public transport planning and management that are relevant and suitable for developing countries, addresses current transportation system inefficiencies, explores the relationship between mobility and accessibility, and analyzes the results for future use. Considers Socioeconomic and Demographic Characteristics It's projected that by 2030, developing nations will have more vehicles than developed nations, and automated guided transit (AGT) and other transport systems will soon be available in India. This text compares five cities using specific indicators-urbanization, population growth, vehicle ownership, and usage. It determines demographic and economic changes in India, and examines how these changes have impacted transportation demand and supply, transport policy and regulations, and aspects of economics and finance related to public transport. The authors emphasize preserving and improving existing modes, efficient use of the public transport management infrastructure, implementing proper planning measures, and encouraging a shift towards sustainable modes. They also discuss sustainability in terms of environment, energy, economic, and land use perspectives and consider the trends of motorization, vehicle growth, modal share, effects on mobility and environment, and transport energy consumption and emissions. Public Transport Planning and Management in Developing Countries addresses the growing resource needs and economics of public transport in developing countries, explains various aspects of public transport planning and management, and provides readers with a basic understanding of both urban and rural public transport planning and management in developing countries. "I am not aware of a book written so well covering public transportation topics in developing countries... I want to have this book on my shelf." -Srinivas S. Pulugurtha, The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, USA "The main strength of this book is its relevancy to the context of developing countries. Behavior of traffic and its planning for developing countries is substantially different compared to those for developed countries. So, this book focuses on this aspect primarily and discusses the policy that needs to be taken for developing countries. Including the aspects of economics and finance related to public transport further makes this book complete." -Pranamesh Chakraborty, Assistant Professor, KIIT University, Bhubaneswar "The focus on public transport in emerging economies, with case studies from Indian cities such as Bangalore, is a particular strength of this book. This makes the book a good reference for understanding the current status of public transport planning and relevant issues in India. Several chapters in the book have benefited from a blend of the authors' academic expertise and their practical experience in public transport planning." -Abdul Rawoof Pinjari, University of South FloridaIntroduction General Status of urban transport in India and developing countries Status of public transport with respect to coverage, feet strength, and utilization in urban areas Sustainability and land use consideration Demography and Settlement Patterns Introduction Demographic changes of India since 1950 Gross domestic product (GDP) Migration to urban areas Growth of slums in urban areas Accessibility and mobility issues for rural settlements Transport infrastructure scenario in India Different Modes and Their Characteristics Mode of transport Transport systems definitions and classifications Intermediate public transport Public transport modes Classification of mass transit modes Integrated transport infrastructure approach A look ahead in public transportation Comparative analyses Current Scenario of Public Transport (PT) in Developing Countries Current perception of PT Current planning and operational practices Issues of coordination and level of services Funding pattern Differences in scenario with respect to developed countries Public Transport Planning in Rural Areas Planning strategy Network planning Travel demand estimation Stakeholder consultation and preferences Public transport mode options Public Transport Planning In Urban Areas Urban transport planning Travel demand estimation Efficient use of existing/proposed infrastructure Routing and scheduling of public transport Intermodal coordination Stakeholder consultation and preferences Feasibility for higher-order modes like BRT and Metro rail Management of Public Transport Urban transport management Data collection, retrieval, and analysis for effective management Role of private sector in public transport management The global trend Assessment of user satisfaction Resource Needs for Public Transport Financial performance of public transport organizations Inter STU comparison Review of the existing funding pattern Estimation of resource requirements Institutional finance for STUs Innovative methods to generate revenue surpluses Economics of Public Transport Cost of public transport services Manpower requirements Estimation of social, economic, and environmental benefits References and Bibliography Index
