GP: Public transport priority system in Krakow - Poland PDF Print E-mail

Krakow perceives the necessity to introduce a high standard priority system in urban public transport. Introducing new solutions, such as more and more separate bus and tram lanes and traffic lights with privilege of public transport vehicles is the most effective way to create a modern, efficient and more friendly public transport for passengers.

Objectives/ Innovative aspects

· To improve punctuality and regularity of public transport vehicles operation.
· To reduce travel time and its randomness.
· To enlarge timetables’ feasibility.
· To increase the number of trips realised by public transport.
· To reduce the number of private cars in the city centre.
· To improve the passengers information system.
· To design a new database with measurements of public transport vehicles operation.
· To formulate new indicators for public transport quality.

The measure

The general tasks of the measure are the design, the development, the analysis and the evaluation of the public transport priority system in Krakow. Existing and new designed parts of the system will be combined. Within the research and technological development activities are conducted concerning the study of the priority corridors, the planning of experiments and the organising and the performance of measurements. There are some demonstration activities that come with the measure regarding the definition of the overall technological aspects of the system, the developing of the needed software, the implementation of the technological system and the operation and testing of the public transport priority system. Additionally the evaluation activities were worked out.

Implementation status

In August 2006 construction of the complementary section of the dedicated bus lane in Trzech Wieszczow Avenue has been finished and put into operation for buses.

(Expected) results

Among the expected results that can be easily verified are the increase in the number of persons using the public transport system by 3%, the improvement of punctuality and regularity coefficients by 10%, the decrease of public transport travel time by 5%, the decrease of travel time randomness by 50%, the reduction of the number of needed vehicles in the public transport fleet by 10%, the reduction of operation expenditures for public transport by 10% and the improvement of the overall image of the public transport services. There are additionally some training activities for students, for other persons involved in measurements and for persons who will analyse the results of measurements.

The above project is part of the CIVITAS-CARAVEL initiative.

The cities of Genoa, Burgos, Krakow and Stuttgart, their public transport operators, industrial partners, and research institutions have defined a common project proposal entitled CIVITAS-CARAVEL.
