Abstract

From the different urban development scenarios presented and the surveys done by the Metro department of Cincinnati, it has been suggested that implementation of BRT on MLK is an option of value. As a part of the preliminary planning process this project is done to obtain the Benefit/Cost analysis for implementing a new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service for a five-mile stretch on Martin Luther King and Madison Rd. The results from the CORSIM simulation model are used to get the required Measures of Efficiencies and by performing the benefit cost analysis it is determined that mixed use with BRT is more useful for present and future scenarios.
