Guangzhou, China opened its new 22.5-kilometer Bus Rapid Transit corridor in 2010. This is the first part of a report which is part of a longer-term monitoring and evaluation program for the Guangzhou BRT. This portion focuses primarily on the system’s impacts on CO2 and air pollution.
In the early 1980s, owning a motorcycle was equivalent in status terms to having an expensive imported car today. During the reform and opening‐up period in the 1980s, motorcycles gradually began to enter millions of households. Faced with very rapid increases in the motorcycle vehicle fleet, the city perceived a number of problems associated with motorcycles. Due to this, the city graudually began introducing progressively stricter bans on motorcycle use in the city.
This article reviews the history of growth of motorcycle use in Guangzhou, the issues caused, which led to measures restricting their use, and the results of the ban, and the lessons thatcan be learned from Guangzhou’s experience.
The City of Guangzhou is seriously considering implementing a Bus Rapid Transit system and have asked for ITDP’s recommendations about the most appropriate initial corridor for such a system.
ITDP has assessed potential BRT corridors and even with the current limited availability of data are able to make firm recommendations about the best initial BRT corridors in Guangzhou.
All of the main corridors in Guangzhou have ample space for BRT implementation, and provided that the BRT system is designed to capture a significant proportion of the existing demand for public transport on the corridor, all of the corridors analysed can implement a BRT system without adversely affecting – and even in several locations improving – the flow of general traffic. In practical terms this means that there are no important disbenefits; it is just a matter of choosing the corridors with the most benefits.
