1 CONTRACT NUMBER: TCP8-GA Gare do Oriente Interchange Station and Connection with Linha do Norte Railways - Case Study 15th December 2011 Lisbon, Portugal Liliana Magalhães, José Viegas, Rosário Macário (IST) 1/ Introduction Gare do Oriente Intermodal Terminal: 10 km from Lisbon city centre Modes of Transport: train: urban, regional, long distance and international subway bus: urban, regional, long distance and international taxi 4 km away from Lisbon Airport Other features: Retail; Services (banks, post, etc) Demand: 75 millions passengers in / 1

2 Introduction (II) Linha do Norte rail link: Length: aprox. 350 km Conventional double track. Train services: Conventional train Tilting train Serves the largest cities: Lisbon, Porto, Coimbra, Aveiro, Vila Nova de Gaia, etc. Traffic: aprox. 2.0 millions passenger/year 3/ Gap in the Business Model Problems with Links Low Quality Link Low integration of the train service with the other public transport services in other station besides Gare do Oriente: Few bus services in the stations and not coordinated with train schedule No adequate public transport solutions from railway stations to small cities Passengers need to build there travel chain leg by leg (multimodality). Passengers forced to go to Garedo Orienteeven when are geographically closer to other stations (such as: Vila Franca de Xira), because of the lack of suitable land-based connections. 2

3 New Business Model Proposal: introduction of Flexible road-transport service Adaptive destinations (pre-determined destinations, but with the possibility to add or remove any others); Transport service outsourced to taxi (possibility to have dedicated service in high demand corridors) Reservation: During rail journey ticket reservation On-board train Tickets valid for both rail and taxi rides Integrated rail-road service, linking passengers to the nearest station (Vila Franca de Xira) Analysis of Viability (I) Potential Market Survey at Gare do Oriente to long distance customers Results Conducted in 2 week days (Wednesday and Friday) Between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. (total of 7 trains per day) Goal was the identification of the origin location of the passengers to these services along the day, thus allowing subsequent estimation of the potential for those new bus services from other stations. Total number of surveyed: Activity before travel Afternoon Between peak hours Morning Night Total Home Leisure or shopping Other Work or study Total ,653 3

4 Analysis of Viability (III) Spatial Distribution Analysis of Viability (III) Spatial Distribution (II) Municipality Cascais Loures Mafra Oeiras Vila Franca de Xira Odivelas Alcochete Almada Barreiro Montijo Palmela Seixal Sesimbra Setúbal Amadora Lisboa Sintra Moita No. surveys with origin in Closest North-Line Station that municipality 36 Oriente 118 Oriente 9 Oriente/Vila Franca de Xira 63 Oriente 12 Vila Franca de Xira 29 Oriente 8 Oriente 18 Oriente 4 Oriente 15 Oriente 5 Oriente 6 Oriente 2 Oriente 28 Oriente 71 Oriente 1055 Oriente 115 Oriente 10 Oriente 18 Municipalities 16 closer to 2 closer to Oriente Vila Franca de Xira 4

5 Last Remarks & Added Value to HERMES Project Very low potential demand -does not justify the introduction of a flexible transport service. Market has reached an equilibrium point, in which passenger adapted to the available offer of transport services, as the large majority of passengers does not return home before going to the train station. Despite the low quality of the transport services, the market is not demanding further improvements Initial hypothesis was not confirmed Case study feeds the Prototype Business Model Prototype related with issues on the links: Low quality service for a few locations although the general provision is good CONTRACT NUMBER: TCP8-GA Gare do Oriente Interchange Station and Connection with Linha do Norte Railways - Case Study 15th December 2011 Lisbon, Portugal Liliana Magalhães, José Viegas, Rosário Macário (IST) 5
