Scientific solution to the Metrobus density from TÜBİTAK: TÜBİTAK's IETT for the ”Metrobus Capacity Increase and Flexible Public Transportation Model“ project implemented in the mass transportation model of metrobus lines and waiting time at stops were reported to be reduced
TUBITAK connected to Turkey Industrial Management Institute (TÜSSİDE) conducted by the project's first leg of the Metrobus system which forms the context of increasing the capacity of researchers, he made the journey in the first analysis.
The stops and the stops and the demands of the passengers were evaluated at which stops and at which stops. After the determination of the distance between metrobuses and the distance between stops, statistical analysis of the obtained data, modeling of the system with scientific methods and testing of the model by simulation, two new lines were put into use.
Project manager Fahrettin Eldemir, said in a statement to the AA correspondent, metropolitan intense demand to meet the demand of IETT to increase the capacity to apply to TÜBİTAK TÜSSİDE said.
Following the protocol signed between the two institutions, they started to think about how they can solve this issue without going into the very serious infrastructure costs. Eldemir said that they are trying to work out a useful solution by approaching the planning issue scientifically.
The average number of passengers per day in the Metrobus 800 will be a thousand
Eldemir explained that when they started the project, 407 vehicles were working on the metrobus line, this number increased to 450 later, and it was not a solution to increase the number of direct buses.
Stating that an average of 700 thousand trips per day was started and by November 2013, the average number of passengers increased to 780 thousand, “This figure reached the level of balancing in March because the capacity was started to be used until the end point. A strong demand will start again in October. We estimate that the average daily numbers in the Metrobus will increase to 800 thousand. ”
Especially when they start the project CevizliElder, who pointed out that there is a demand beyond the service provided by IETT in the sections between Bağ and Şirinevler, continued his words as follows:
Ik First of all, we looked at 'how can we distribute buses more appropriately to lines'. We have put all possible line combinations into a mathematical model and we wanted to solve the solution completely without any intervention.
The model offered us new lines. We looked at the ones that can be applied in these new lines. It was analyzed in more detail. How the passenger movements are changing, what gives a result towards the future, all these were analyzed.
Simulations were made until it was sure, instead of directly accepting the solution given by the mathematical model, we performed sensitivity analyzes and partially implemented it on the field. Emin
We've lowered the number of transmissions under the 18 bin
Fahrettin Eldemir stated that Söğütlüçeşme-Avcılar and Beylikdüzü-Zincirlikuyu lines were added to the metrobus line during the implementation phase. 720 was using the 200 bin transfer of a thousand journey. We think we have reduced these transfer numbers to less than 18 bin düşünüy.
"There were times when we reached 108 percent of the capacity offered on the busiest line." In other words, the passenger waiting at the busiest station will not be able to get on the bus because it is full. ”
Eldemir, the system has not been solved with everything yet, the transfer of passengers from the metro station is more Şirinevler and Yenibosna stations, these stations should be considered in different solutions, he added.
Travel time of passengers stiffened
IETT General Manager Mumin Kahveci said that they cooperated with TÜBİTAK TÜSSİDE to improve the public transportation line network and to ensure that passengers arrive at their destination in a shorter time and travel more safely.
Kahveci, who stated that the objectives of the first phase of the project were to shorten the travel time in the metrobus and to increase the efficiency and security, he said:
I The first step was started. The crowds in Beylikdüzü-Zincirlikuyu line decreased. From Sogutlucesme to Avcilar, our passengers can travel without interruption. The operating conditions of the drivers have improved a bit. Thus, it was an economic saving for us and the travel time of the passengers was shortened. Böylece
Kahveci emphasized that they started the optimization work of 750 public transportation line in Istanbul within the scope of the second phase of the project and stated that they will continue to benefit from TÜBİTAK's knowledge and experience in improving vehicle technology and intelligent transportation systems.
