Design criteria for the communication, participation, and implementation processes for the new bus network model

The new network model

The objective of this project is to establish the necessary elements to assist with the communication, participation, and implementation processes for the new bus network developed by BCNecologia. The new bus network represents a profound change in the habits, behaviours and lifestyles of the whole community and urban environment.

This criteria is achieved through a strategy that highlights citizenship as an integral component of urban transport: this new bus network can transport citizens almost anywhere in the city using at most a single bus transfer. This network will have increased speed and frequency, making a significant improvement to traditional urban bus systems.

In order to reach all areas of the city, districts were defined to analyze the areas of influence that the new bus network would cover. Stops were placed near public facilities, service centers of attraction, connection to green spaces, etc.

To improve communication, both print formats and the internet were used to connect with citizens. Moreover, volunteer support and events to reinforce the information at street level were used, increasing communication and the quality of information.

The new bus network represents a profound change in the habits, behaviours and lifestyles of the whole community.
