The MTC Route Rationalization project was born out of the need to improve the bus network system in Chennai.
The current mismatch between the supply and demand of buses in Chennai is around 5000. Even within the current route network, we are working with MTC to actively analyze the Ticketing Machine data to suggest modifications to the routes.
Some of the direct consequences of this analyses has been Routes 570S, 19BS, 102 Cut and pretty much most buses that terminate at Siruseri IT Park.
Our Next suggestion is to make MTC route network more easily identifiable and understandable. Imagine a London Tube kind of system, where you don’t have to ask about the destination from anyone and just read it from the map!
We are working with the Transport Department to create a High Density Bus Network that is along these lines.
