Expanding Rapid Transit Opportunities
BRT Expansion to Gajuwaka
This study would develop and recommend a new bus rapid transit (BRT) alignment between Gajuwaka, the Visakhapatnam Navy Base and the Visakhapatnam RTC Complex. Elements of the study would include ridership forecasts, 5% concept engineering, identification of station and depot locations, vehicle requirements, property requirements and environmental and social impact assessments. The feasibility of electrifying this route would also be evaluated.
BRT Financing Plan for New Route
This study would develop a financing plan for potential revenues from ridership, advertising, property development, third-party financing, and methods for project procurement.
