The objective of the ‘Advanced Bus Solution’ (ABS) study was to provide the details of a preferred advanced bus solution for central access and city to / from the Airport that provides the opportunity for a step change in current service levels:

  • the Advanced Bus Solution utilises new and emerging technologies
  • it has been outlined to sufficient detail to enable comparisons with other modes at the Programme Business Case / Indicative Business Case level

The study comprised six modules of work over an 11week period (October – December 2016):

  • Review of evaluation criteria and establishment of cost benefit analysis methodology
  • Review of current bus solution
  • Assessment of advanced bus initiatives
  • Advanced bus option development
  • Advanced bus option selection (based on costbenefit and multicriteria analysis)
  • Definition of preferred ‘Advanced Bus Solution(s)’

The project was undertaken by L.E.K. Consulting, with support from TDG and international subject matter experts (James TinnionMorgan, Brendan Finn and Samuel Zimmerman).
