Network management: extra service on top of basic mobility

Network management: extra service on top of basic mobility

Developing an ideal De Lijn network, depending on the demand in each region. That is the purpose of the 'network management decree' of the Flemish government. The decree describes a number of conditions and standards to which the De Lijn network must comply on top of the provision of basic mobility.
Network management is based on the demand for transport, while basic mobility is based on a basic provision of transport. Through network management we want to refine our city and regional transport further by providing new connections or revise the frequency of existing lines. 
An example of network management can be found on Mobility vision 2020.

What is the network management?

Network management is a method to optimise our bus and tram network: we research where the provision is not attuned to the demand for public transport.

Network management implements objective research methods by which we verify where the greatest needs arise. In that way we can determine priorities objectively.

Feasibility studies

Flanders is divided in 12 + 1 transport regions: 12 transport regions with a transport centre on the Flemish territory and 1 specific Flemish transport region around the Brussels Capital Region. In each transport region we analyse the existing transport flows. We compare this with the existing provision of public transport and the criteria of the decision network management. We then study how many passengers we can attract with the additional service, for example a new line or an increased frequency of an existing line.

After the research

The proposals that show a great potential to additional passengers, are discussed with the municipalities involved. If the parties involved concluded a cooperative agreement with De Lijn and the project is positively evaluated by a quality advisor, the project is carried out. The result is then, for instance a new bus or trame line or a revised timetable.
