Restart concept public systems transport for Voznesensk

Public transport is the most important component of sustainable mobility for most cities. In 2022, we worked with the city of Voznesensk, which is known in professional circles as a small but progressive city in southern Ukraine.  

The city has a typical situation - private carriers and many routes. Passenger flows are declining, the cost of fuel is rising. The provision of services on routes becomes unprofitable. Carriers regularly demand tariff increases. At the same time, passengers - the community - are dissatisfied with tariffs, quality of services and schedules. On some routes, the interval is 45-60 minutes, which essentially makes such routes social for people who are in no hurry. Solvent customers change cars.  

The system problem needs systemic solutions, so the city council hired consultants to find options for such solutions. 

As part of the provision of services were implemented: 

  • Inventory of stops and compilation of their digital register and geospatial database (including "legal" and "actual" stops); 

  • Compilation of a database of all routes, schedules, rolling stock of all carriers; 

  • Urban and spatial analysis of the city and community; 

  • Transport zoning of the city and OTG; 

  • An online survey of citizens, which was attended by 1,194 people. 

  • Technical and economic calculations of the current situation, which allowed to calculate the volume of transport work and other key indicators.  

As a result of the analysis of the received data and consultations, the complex concept of reorganization of a route network and system of rendering of services which should: 

  • Increase economic performance for carriers (profitability), 

  • To increase comfort, reliability and frequency of services for passengers (comfort), 

  • Ensure reduction of complaints received by the city council, 

  • Ensure increased mobility of community residents.  

The concept developed as a result of the project provides: 

  • Reducing the number of routes from 24 to 15, including two routes to the suburban villages of the community, and 10 routes within the city; 

  • Reduction of service intervals on most routes; 

  • Formation  and registration of a interchange in the market area with coordination of schedules; 

  • New network of stops, including legalization of many actually existing stops, and naming them; 

  • Information support for full and early informing of users about changes; 

  • Recommendations on infrastructural measures to bring stops to the requirements of comfort and accessibility; 

  • Recommendation for exploring the possibility of establishing a public carrier, possibly together with neighboring communities in the framework of inter-municipal cooperation.  

After developing the Concept, the city decided to develop passports for new routes and prepare for the launch of a new tender for transportation. This is planned to be implemented in 2022.
