Green BRT in Tehran

pdf PDF


Population growth and urban development in recent years, has created many problems in the transport field of major cities. Increased traffic, noise and air pollution in large cities is the phenomenon of negative consequences. Creation Appropriate infrastructure to facilitate the use of the public transport system is the best option for confronting with this problem. With the advent BRT system and dedicated public transport corridor for the public transport system, speed and volume displacement increases and thus reducing private car traffic and pollution levels have declined. This paper presents the design of bus and bus stations equipped with solar cells, with ability isolated and connect power supplies between bus and stations to elimination of fossil fuel in the path of Tehran BRT to increase efficiency and reduce environmental lead contamination. In addition, a brief background of Tehran BRT in section 1 and the electrical bus types are presented in section 2, the methodology employed in section 3 and the idea for improvement described in section 4 and conclusion can be found in section5.
