Best solution report on global innovative public transport (book chapter)


The overall objective of WP5 – Innovative Public Transport Solutions is to select best practices in the field of public transport already implemented in the four project’s target regions and investigate as well as report on their planning, implementation and operating processes. The selection was based on a common methodology applied to WPs 3 to 7 and took advantage of the outcomes of the Viajeo Plus workshops, named “City Showcase”, organized within the project lifetime in Europe (Gothenburg), Latin America (São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro), China (Chengdu) and Singapore to showcase deployed systems, services or measures which are comparatively new in the domain, have produced significant benefits to cities and have a high transferability potential. The selection led to the identification of 5 “best solutions” which are not intended to give a comprehensive overview of the most innovative Public Transport trends worldwide but to present selected successful experiences in the field, namely:  Redesigning the bus network in Barcelona;  Shifting commuters travel patterns in Singapore;  Implementing BRT systems in Brazilian cities hosting large events;  Developing a network of underground interchanges in Madrid;  Integrating mobile ticketing systems in a multichannel and interoperable technological platform. Overall the 5 best solutions are dealing with measures or policies which have been proven to advance both the level of service and the quality of service of PT systems. Therefore they show the need to take into consideration both aspects to maximize the potential of PT systems as a key driver to reduce urban congestion and promote sustainable and car-independent lifestyles
