public transport optimisation
How can Ajka optimise its public transport network to ongoing infrastructural changes?
The City of Ajka (Hungary), has a population of 28,000 inhabitants.
The city is a central hub for work, health, and educational services. It has merged from 6 villages and therefore more than 14 000 citizens commute to Ajka city centre every day.
Over the last 10 years the number of cars in the city has increased by 24%. The Municipality of Ajka has decided to re-organise and optimise the public transportation system to address the local and regional mobility issues that arise from high congestion rates and insufficient public transportation routes. The construction of a new bridge in the city is at the heart of this challenge as it will restructure the public transportation network and improve mobility flows in the city.
Expected to-be situation
- Improved public transport timetables that reflect the needs of the residents of the city
- Increased accessibility and reliability of the railway station
- Enhanced information and communication channels to keep residents up to date with changes within the urban mobility system.
- Increased number of public transport users, leading to reduced congestion and car use
