Continuing from previous discussion, possible routes...

Chennai's elevated BRT system

BusPublic Transport

While Bangalore planners are still toying with BRT concept, Chennai seems to have an elevated corridor identified for BRT (Bus Rapid Transport System). Wonder if we have some Chennai geeks here who can enlighten how the corridor was identified, and history of the BRT idea in Chennai in general.

Docs related to controlling traffic growth

have attached some docs related to parking (HU's comments to DULT on their parking policy) and the HU mobility manifesto (in kannada and english), though these docs might be useful for people working on this project.


not sure if this was the best way to attach these docs, so in case its not ok, dont feel upset :-)

First things first. If you don't like BRT, think it absolutely can't be done, please keep out, and discuss on other posts. This thread is for those who think that BRT in some sort or form (dedicated corridors, only at some places, or priority signals, or bus only magic boxes, or whatever) is needed for Bangalore, and can possibly be done. comment guidelines
