• Transport challenges
• Initiatives to address transport challenges
• Elements of Integrated Public Transport Network
(IPTN)
• Elements of Intelligent transport Systems (ITS)
• Benefits of transport initiatives
• Progress to date
• Opportunities for private sector involvement
TRANSPORT CHALLENGES
• Traffic congestion causing delays, increased
user costs, fuel consumption, accidents and
deterring investment
• Overcrowded Public Transport (PT) facilities
• PT Modes not coordinated and integrated
• Over-reliance on private transport
• Irregular parking and loading
• Inadequate pedestrian and bicycle facilities
• Lack of CoT funding
INITIATIVES TO ADDRESS
TRANSPORT CHALLENGES
• Comprehensive Integrated Transport Plan
(CITP)
• Integrated Public Transport Network (IPTN)
• Intelligent Transport System (ITS):
– Urban Traffic Control (dynamic computer control of
traffic signals from Central Control Centre)
– Advanced Traffic Management
– Parking Management
– Advanced PT Management (automated fare
collection and real-time passenger information)
ELEMENTS OF IPTN
• Integration of all PT modes, routes and services
• Dedicated public transport lanes for trunk services entering
the CBD from outer areas
• Inner-city distribution system using smaller vehicles
accessing final destinations from trunk services, such as
BRT and Train
• Integrated ticketing
• Integrated PT facilities providing efficient modal transfers
• Transit malls – dedicated road reserve for public transport
and pedestrians
• Pedestrian and Bicycle facilities
ELEMENTS
OF ITS
• Advanced traffic management
providing for efficient and safe
movement of vehicles
• Coordinating of traffic signals
• Incident management to clear accident scenes quickly
• Parking management optimising the utilisation of parking space and
limiting search time for parking
• Advanced PT management providing priority for PT at traffic
signals, real-time passenger information, and security (CCTV
cameras)
• Automated Fare Collection using smart cards paying for all PT
services and parking eg. Gautrain Gold Card
• Integrated Traffic and PT Control Centre

BENEFITS OF TRANSPORT
INITIATIVES
• Reduction in travel time and providing efficient and easy
access to various employment, retail, business, social and
tourist activities in inner city
• Reduction in user costs to access inner-city
• Reducing traffic accidents and minimise impact of accidents on
traffic and pedestrian flow
• Reduce carbon foot-print of inner-city transport and fuel
consumption
• Make inner-city pedestrian and cycling friendly as well as for
people who are physically challenged
• These initiatives will lay the foundation for the revival of innercity and attracting businesses back to the CBD
PROGRESS TO DATE
• Update of CITP, which will also include IPTN – tender
process near completion
• PMU of IRPTN appointed and dedicated project office
in process to be procured and equipped
• IRPTN planning in process:
– Transport Demand and Financial Models developed
– New route to Soshanguve/Mabopane planned and prelim
design in progress
– Route to Mamelodi via Sunnyside and Hatfield being
planned
PROGRESS TO DATE (2)
• ITS and UTC Strategy formulated and documented
• Report on ITS Communications Network completed
and interim scoping of Control Centre
• Integrated Marketing and Communications Strategy
approved by MayCo
• Internal CoT Steering Committee established
• Formal Consultation in process with Taxi Advisory
Council, PRASA and Bus Operators
PROPOSED UTC IN CBD

OPPORTUNITIES FOR PRIVATE
SECTOR INVOLVEMENT
• BRT provides many opportunities: Bus operator concession,
financial entity handling ticketing and cash flows, facility
management of BRT stations, Advanced PT management
system and operations
• Provision and operation of inner-city distribution system
• Transit Orientated Development (TOD) around PT modal
interchanges where development, facilities management of
PT facility is combined with development of commercial
property
OPPORTUNITIES FOR PRIVATE
SECTOR INVOLVEMENT
• Development opportunities around major modal transfer
stations with funding from value capture – property values
already increased around Gautrain stations
• Facility Management of PT facilities
• Bike-rental schemes – examples Nantes, Amsterdam,
London
• Provision and operation of Para-transit services i.e. Dial-aRide (Dynamic scheduling of small passenger vehicles
combining trips with common origins and destination)
• UTC development and Operations: As turn-key solution or
elements of the system
