Bus Rapid Transit or commonly known as BRT Greenline Karachi is a fully segregated Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system operated with the “world’s first” biomethane hybrid bus fleet.
The Government announced plans to provide an infrastructure component to launch an approximately 30 kilometers BRT Green Line project on modern lines to alleviate the traffic congestion problems in the city. Also, it is aimed to improve the quality of life of above 1.5 million people who are daily commuters by improving the existing transport system.
To ensure the smooth and efficient running of the mass transit system, the Government of Pakistan needs an Integrated Intelligent Transport System to be established. An IITS system is required to enable operators and travelers to experience an organized system. The BRT Greenline Karachi required better and more coordinated decisions between operators and travelers to improve system performance in terms of better passenger handling.
To achieve that, the system needs the application of advanced information processing, communications, security, and management strategies in an integrated manner to improve the functioning of the transportation system.
Wavetec took the privilege of being part of a project by the Government of Pakistan. They offered digital transformation services based on the gaps of the Greenline project.
The goal of solutions implemented is to maximize ROI with the implementation of quality equipment of international standards and also to design a customized solution
Deployed 900+ indoor and outdoor cameras to ensure continuous safety, security & surveillance system on:
Communication Network and Digital Transmission System that consists of:
The Energy Management System deployed on OCC, Depot, and all stations which are:
The BRTS goes through a mixed traffic intersection at multiple points. Wavetec offers Signal Priority at these intersections to provide priority transit for the BRTS Buses.
Real-time passenger information displayed at bus stops/stations (LED technology)
A typical customer journey flow of a technically advanced Bus Rapid Transit is based on 6 core steps:
Wavetec partnered with the leading entities in the region for smooth implementation of the BRT system. Huawei, Vertiv, and Dahua offered great support to compose an advanced infrastructure of the project.
Altogether, the partnered organizations contributed to getting the facilitation at different points of the Green Line BRT system. Precisely, these helped to improve the design capacity of the project, operations at data centers, communication networks and put in place the surveillance systems as needed for the efficient delivery of the project.
