Utrecht wants to implement various physical measures to provide a better bus connection between the northern neighbourhood of Overvecht and the city centre.
The main objectives of the measure are to:
- improve the quality (travel times) and reliability of the PT connection between the city centre and Overvecht (Northern part of the city);
- increase usage of the buses on this line.
One of the main axes in the public transport network of Utrecht is the bus line connecting Overvecht – a district located in the northern part of Utrecht – with the city centre. The recurrent delays observed on this line imply considerable mobility problems for public transport users. The MIMOSA measure ‘Quality Bus Line’ aimed to improve the service quality of the bus line between the city centre and Overvecht. Based on an extensive analysis of the diverse options for optimisation the focused bus line, a set of short, medium and long term measures was developed, with the objectives to reduce travel times, enhance the reliability of the bus line and increase the number of users on this line.
