Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

Introduction
The public transport system in Leeds consists of various modes facing different changes in delivering an effective service. It continues to evolve to meet the changing needs of a growing population.
Since 2009, Leeds City Council has been working with other partners to add a new mode to this public transport mix, a trolley bus system known as New Generation Transport (NGT).
Your objective is to research the Leeds public transport system and write a report which addresses the questions below.
Your tasks
• List the various modes/types of public transport systems available in Leeds. (5 Marks)
• Compare the above modes of transport in terms of operation, efficiency, connectivity, price and level of use. You should use a table for this.
(10 Marks)
• Explain the possible improvements that could be made to the existing modes to attract more passengers. (10 Marks)
• Discuss the engineering constraints you would face in trying to expand each of the existing public transport networks. (10 Marks)
• Explain how the introduction of the trolley bus system (NGT) will affect the other modes of public transport. (10 Marks)
• Explain the factors that would affect the location of the route for the trolley bus system in Leeds. (10 Marks)
• What data would you need to collect in order to help you decide on the best location for the route for the trolley bus system? (5 Marks)
• Explain what parameters you would need to design the horizontal and vertical alignments of the route for the trolley bus system. (10 Marks)

• What factors would influence the location of the junctions along this route?
(10 Marks)
• What facilities would you provide for pedestrians to enable them to access the
trolley bus system? (10 Marks)
• Compare the trolley bus system proposed with a tram and discuss which would
have been an appropriate system for Leeds. (10 Marks)
