Automated Fare Collection and Surveillance Solution For Intelligent Transport System ( I T S )
BHOPAL MUNICIPAL CORPORATION

APRIL-2013

The City Bus services system in Bhopal is operated by Bhopal City Link Limited (BCLL) formed as SPV functioning under Bhopal Municipal Corporation. The BCLL has been, since its inception in October 2006, functioning as SPV and managing the Bhopal city bus services through private bus Operator with the role of a facilitator. BMC/BCLL is committed to enhance commuter satisfaction, reliability and punctuality of public transport thereby reducing the dependence on private modes of transport by improving the city bus services in Bhopal. Under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JnNURM), 225 no. of buses were sanctioned to Bhopal Municipal Corporation and there are currently 150 no. of buses are being operated by Bhopal Municipal Corporation through SPV BCLL on 8 routes in the Bhopal city catering to the needs of more than one lakh passengers every day. BMC/BCLL has adopted a net-cost based Public- Private Partnership (PPP) operational model with the city providing the basic infrastructure and the private Bus Operator being responsible for operation and maintenance of the buses. This model has received good recognition. Bhopal Bus Operation is one of the successful model in India and has received the UMI award 2011 for the best practices in PPP initiatives taken by Bhopal Municipal Corporation. Apart from an innovative model, BMC/BCLL has also adopted the use of Automatic Vehicle Location System (AVLS) on all its fleet size and also installing Passenger Information Systems (PIS) at selected stops for relaying this information to the passengers waiting at the bus-stops. Presently BMC through an SPV formed BCLL, which operates 150 low floor buses out of 225 buses in the various route of city. BMC/BCLL would scale to 225 no. of buses operating from 325 bus stop and about 82 no. would be BRTS bus stops in the BRTS Corridor from Misrod to Bairagarh. In order to further improve the system, the city of Bhopal has embarked upon implementing the BRT project on 24.0 k.m. of heavy demand corridor and the BRTS corridor from Misrod to Bairagarh will come into operation by JUNE, 2013. Under the JnNURM scheme, a new fleet of 20 no. fully airconditioned low floor buses is also being procured which are proposed for operating in the 24 km BRT corridor. This project has received financial support from JnNURM for development of infrastructure and also a grant for the installation of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). The BRTS project is expected to boost the modal share of bus based public transport. Right from inception, BCLL has adopted the path of innovation, in order to achieve the goal of offering good quality public transport, with available limited resources. Support under JnNURM scheme has allowed BCLL through Bhopal Municipal Corporation, for operation of the low floor buses in Bhopal City for the improvement of the public transport in the Bhopal city. BMC/BCLL as an organization is strongly committed to provide better urban transport facility to commuters. It is envisioned that, after the implementation of Automated Fare Collection and Surveillance Solution For Intelligent Transport System (I T S ) in the BRTS Corridor for Bhopal City Bus Services in the public transport sector in Bhopal city, the bus services shall be modernized to the extent of providing an attractive, comfortable, easy and time-efficient experience to the public transport users in the city. 3.

Scale up existing ITS Command and Data Centre: Add the required workstations and operate and maintain Command Centre with qualified staff. Automated fare collection & Revenue Management System: All the revenue generated from the Automatic Ticket vending Machines (ATVM) & point of sale will be collected by the service provider & the total revenue will be deposited in the account of BCLL/BMC as per the instruction of the MD, BCLL/Commissioner, BMC. Point of sale: Provision of POS as defined in the BOQ. Electronic Ticketing Vending Machine (ETVM): Provision of ETVM as defined in the BOQ 3.1 -

Off-Board Fare Collection Solution for BRTS buses:


Automatic Ticket vending Machines (ATVM) terminals need to be installed in the specified bus stops. Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) will need the commercials to be provided by bidder per bus stop so that Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) will scale it based on the infrastructure requirements. The ATVM machines should be capable of accepting coins from the users and issue RFID token based tickets to them which comes handy for customers who do not have smart cards. The off board ticket issue is to be validated with fare gates. Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) would require proposals for Automated Fare Gates which are
Page 6 of 60

Automated Fare Collection and Surveillance Solution For Intelligent Transport System ( I T S )
BHOPAL MUNICIPAL CORPORATION

APRIL-2013

capable to validating and fare deduction at destination based on the distance commuted. . Both the completely automatic fare gate and turnstile tripod fare gates should also be extended to validate paper tickets issued by ETVM, which will have 2D barcode in addition to validating the RFID tokens. There will two automated fare gates installed in every BRTS bus stop, one for validating passengers during entry and one for exit. In addition to this one turnstile tripod gate will be required to permit passengers to transit.

3.2 -

On-Board Fare Collection Solution for Feeder buses


The Bus Validators need to be installed in each of the bus plying in the BRTS route as per the quantities published in bill of materials. The bus Validators should be able to sync with the hotspot infrastructure provided by the bidder or work using the connectivity, which may be on-board. The bus validator should be able to accept smart card, RFID based plastic coin based fare collection. The bus validator should have two parts, one to be installed near the rear door for passengers boarding and one to be installed in the front door designated for passengers to disembark. The bus validator should calculate the fare based on the distance commuted by the passengers. The bus validator should support over the air upgrade of fare rules during wifi syncing.

The scenarios to be handled in both off-board and on-board fare collections are depicted in the flows below:

Common Points across scenarios: In all cases, during final fare deduction point, if sufficient balance is not there an alarm is to be raised. In all cases, the card is checked for validity and for availability of minimum fare is verified in the entry point validator/gate. All buses are equipped with Bus Validators capable of fare processing from Smart Cards and RFID plastic tickets along with ETVM to issue paper tickets. The boarding and alighting locations are different for BRT and feeder buses in the bus stops. In some cases, they are in different physical stop locations. The passes would be issued only in the form of smart cards which can be recognized by Bus Validators, Fare Gates and ETMs. The reason behind supporting ETVM is providing alternate ticketing options as all bus stops may not have the infrastructure to tender RFID tickets or smart cards and validate them. 3.3 Video Surveillance Solution for all buses The buses need to be installed with one camera in the front, one in the rear side. These two cameras should be capable of operating in day and night vision with adequate IR LED support. Digital Video recorded needs to be installed in the bus which would be capable of recording the video streams on a continuous basis. The DVR should be capable to pushing the recorded video streams whenever the buses approach the bus terminals over WiFi. The service provider should also provide the WiFi hotspot infrastructure in the bus terminals, where connectivity needs to be provided. The exact area for estimation may be obtained by physical inspection as well. The video management application used in the control room should be able to comprehend the recorded information to facilitate review in the control room. 3.4

Management Information System (MIS):

The MIS reports to provide details earnings information per bus, per bus stop, projected by time, duration, etc. The reports should enable analysis of efficiency and potential of all the routes to enable scaling decisions. 3.5 Integration with Automatic vehicle Locating System

(AVLS):
The service provider should work on integrating with existing Automatic vehicle Locating System (AVLS), Passenger Information System (PIS) and Passenger Announcement
