Bus Route Network: how to upgrade it on demand
Since 2015, public transport in Moscow made a leap to a new level. Along with rolling stock renewal Moscow started elaborating and implementing new ground route scheme.
The route network was significantly redesigned. Initial aim was to eliminate the duplicates. The number of routes of private carriers was reduced from 460 in 2015 to 211 operating routes. This reduction resulted in a decrease in the number of vehicles of commercial carriers: from 4.6 thousand vehicles in 2015 to 1.9 thousand buses now. All this led eventually to a reduction in road congestion. The implementation for route calculation on the base of data and new digital technologies brought Moscow to multi-route schedule. This schedule is in the process of constant development as on requests of inhabitants, but also on the base of data calculations and analysis. The future is seen in the balanced multimodal transport system, for which each city have to start to prepare.
