first_imgHalte bus di UEA (www.uea.ac.uk) Setelah bus hadir dengan teknologi ramah lingkungan, maka halte sebagai pra sarana transportasi idealnya juga harus mendukung kampanye yang sama. Namun pada penerapannya, terasa jauh lebih sulit mengimplementasikan halte yang ramah lingkungan. Namun nun jauh di Inggris, tepatnya kota Norwich, justru ada halte yang dibangun dengan tak hanya ramah lingkungan, tapi juga dapat memberi rasa nyaman bagi calon penumpang bus.Baca juga: Teknologi Ultra Broadband Sambangi Halte Bus di Selandia BaruKabarPenumpang.com melansir dari laman uea.ac.uk (6/10/2017), sebuah halte bus di Univesity of East Anglia (UEA) di Inggris mendapat penghargaan dari Asosiasi Arsitek Norfolk atas keahlian dan desain yang dihadirkannya. Halte ini mendapat penghargaan lantaran dianggap sebagai salah satu tempat yang memiliki kualitas karbon rendah. Sebab, proyek halte bus ini bangun oleh MJS dengan menggunakan bahan yang berkelanjutan dan memiliki atap hijau untuk memberikan kesan keanekaragaman hayati dan sangat ramah lingkungan. Sedangkan untuk desain halte ini sendiri dibuat oleh arsitek LSI yang membuat struktur bangunanan dengan baja Kantilever sederhana yang di susun di bagian tengah halte.Tempat duduk untuk menunggu bus di halte ini pun dibuat sedikit unik dengan menjadikan beberapa ayunan dan sisanya seperti tempat duduk biasa. Selain membuat nyaman, menunggu bus pun menjadi tidak bosan. Tak hanya ramah lingkungan dan nyaman, halte bus ini juga sudah dilengkapi dengan papan informasi elektronik dengan jadwal real time terkait kedatangan dan keberangkatan bus.Baca juga: Nunggu Bus di Halte ini Bisa Bikin Tambah Pintar, Lho!“Halte bus ini merupakan proyek kolaborasi dengan gagasan dan umpan balik dari pengguna bus, termasuk mahasiswa yang memang akses ke kampusnya menggunakan bus. Selain itu ide rancangan halte ini mendapat masukan kreatif dari para arsitek LSI. Ini menghasilkan tempat penampungan yang menarik atas beberapa gagasan dan memberi cetak biru untuk area tunggu di masa depan,” ujar Dawn Dewar, Koordinator Transportasi Univesity of East Anglia.Diketahui, halte bus ramah lingkungan di Univesity of East Anglia sudah ada dan dibuka pada November 2016 lalu yang juga menjadi bagian dari skema Dewan Norfolk County dan pihak univestitas untuk meningkatkan citra, efektivitas dan penggunaan transportasi umum di area kampus.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedWow, Halte Bus di Inggris Tawarkan Sensasi Bak ‘Rumah Nenek’, Aneh atau Keren?04/03/2020In “Darat”10 Halte Bus Ini Jelas Tidak Biasa10/04/2017In “Bus dalam kota”Bus Listrik Untuk TransJakarta, Antara Harapan dan Realita30/11/2017In “Bus dalam kota”last_img read more

first_imgSalah satu bus listrik yang dioperasikan oleh Foothill Transit. sumber: pri.org Kondisi polusi udara yang sudah semakin tidak bisa ditolerir belakangan ini membuat sejumlah eksekutif yang berkecimpung di sektor transportasi di luar sana memutar otak guna mencari jalan keluar dari polemik turunan ini. Beragam opsi yang ditawarkan oleh produsen transportasi, mulai dari moda darat, laut, hingga udara guna memerangi polusi ini ditawarkan agar mereka bisa tetap membiarkan ‘dapurnya ngebul’. Salah satu opsi yang paling relevan untuk kondisi sekarang ini adalah moda listrik.Baca Juga: Cina Rajai Populasi Bus Listrik di Seluruh DuniaTidak bisa ditampik, beraga varian moda listrik kini mulai bermunculan ke permukaan – mulai dari electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) yang mewakili moda udara, kapal ferry bertenaga listrik yang mewakili moda laut, kereta listrik dan bus listrik yang mewakili moda darat. Semuanya menyajikan keuntungannya masing-masing, kendati beberapa dari mereka akan mengubah regulasi yang selama ini diberlakukan. Nah, ngomong-ngomong soal bus listrik, ternyata Negeri Tirai Bambu Cina hingga saat ini masih didapuk sebagai negara penghasil bus listrik terbesar di dunia. Seperti yang dikutip KabarPenumpang.com dari laman pri.org (8/10), Anda dapat dengan mudah menemukan eksistensi dari bus listrik di jalanan-jalanan di Cina sana – lengkap dengan stasiun pengisian dayanya yang dapat dilakukan sembari bus beroperasi.Tidak percaya bahwa Cina merupakan pengguna bus listrik paling banyak di dunia? Sebuah fakta menyebutkan bahwa kota Shenzhen di Cina mengoperasikan sekitar 16.000 bus listrik dan ada lebih dari 400.000 bus listrik yang beroperasi di keseluruhan wilayah Cina. Sementara itu rival Cina dalam Perang Dagang, Amerika Serikat hanya mengoperasikan segerintil bus listrik saja.Sebutlah Foothill Transit, sebuah agen angkutan umum yang didanai oleh 22 pemerintah kota yang ada di lembah San Gabriel dan Pomona hanya mengoperasikan 33 unit bus listrik saja, atau sepersepuluh dari total armada yang dimiliki Negeri Paman Sam.Baca Juga: Bus Listrik asal Cina Bawa Perubahan Radikal pada Transportasi di SantiagoDari angka yang tersaji di atas saja, Anda sudah bisa melihat perbedaan yang amat sangat jauh antara Negeri Adikuasa dengan Cina, bukan? Pertanyaan lain yang muncul adalah, “Mengapa Cina bisa sebanyak itu mengoperasikan bus listrik?”Jawabannya amatlah sederhana, karena negara dengan populasi terbesar di dunia tersebut sudah paham betul akan kondisi polusi yang sudah semakin meradang, dan mulai memprioritaskan elektrifikasi angkutan umum dengan subsidi dan peraturan nasional. Jadi, wajar saja apabila Cina seolah sudah biasa saja dengan kehadiran bus listrik – tidak seperti negara lain yang masih memiliki euforia yang tinggi terhadap moda ini.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedTransMilenio, Bakal Jadi Operator Bus Listrik Terbesar di Benua Amerika02/12/2019In “Bus dalam kota”Cina Rajai Populasi Bus Listrik di Seluruh Dunia16/01/2018In “Bus dalam kota”Bus Listrik Untuk TransJakarta, Antara Harapan dan Realita30/11/2017In “Bus dalam kota”last_img read more

first_imgSPONSORS are signing on for the first national Race of Champions, set for the South Dakota Circuit on March 25.Already locked in are the title sponsors Tropical Shipping, STAG Beer and Mohamed’s Enterprise with several others signing up for the event.President of the Guyana Motor Racing and Sport Club, Rameez Mohamed, believes that this is key if the sport is to progress.“Sponsor confidence, that’s what we are seeing for the first round of the National race of champions and that’s what we like to see. It says that we are doing something that sponsors appreciate,” he said.“What we feel is that once the sponsors have confidence in us then we are going to pull off a great race meet for competitors, fans and everyone else.”Among the sponsors already confirmed are Prem’s Electrical, Nexus Machining and Fabrication Workshop, A&R Jiwanram Printery, Jumbo Jet stables and BM Soat.The event is expected to undergo minimal change, if any, with the standard groups getting three races.

first_imgSTARKVILLE – Mississippi State played one of the ten most difficult schedules in the country. Preparing for those opponents might be less stressful than the uncertainty that follows a successful regular season.“This is the crazy time of the year for coaches,” MSU coach Dan Mullen said. “You look here — (MSU athletic director) Scott Stricklin’s worried I’m leaving. I’m worried my coaches are leaving. The coaches are worried their players are going to enter the NFL draft. It’s just a vicious circle.”One of Mullen’s fears became a reality on Tuesday. Defensive coordinator Geoff Collins accepted the same position at Florida. He became the first hire for new Gators coach Jim McElwain.Collins signed a rich two-year extension with Mississippi State last January that paid him $1.2 million annually and was due for a $50,000 raise in 2015.“Geoff did a great job here and pleased with what he’s done,” Mullen said. “Our ‘psycho defense’ will continue to be a ‘psycho defense’ on the field. That’s our program, that’s what we play here.”There’s been flux among Mullen’s top assistants since he came to Starkville. Collins is the second coordinator to leave Starkville in as many years. Offensive coordinator Les Koenning accepted a job at Texas last year to become a position coach. Collins’ replacement will be the fifth defensive coordinator in seven years under Mullen.“We’ll look at all that stuff. I don’t know. We always play great defense here,” Mullen said. “We play great defense no matter what coach is going to be here. As long as I’m the head coach, we’ll always play great defense here.”Last year’s departure of Koenning revolved around philosophy. Mullen calls Mississippi State’s offensive plays. Koenning was dispensable. Mullen used the opening to bring in Brian Johnson to coach the quarterbacks.Collins’ decision may involve comfort. The defensive coordinator has strong ties to the state of Florida. He landed his first coaching job at the FBS level with Central Florida. Two years later, he moved on to become the defensive coordinator at FIU.Mullen also took a shot at his defensive coaches after the Egg Bowl.“That’s just absolutely pathetic,” Mullen said after Ole Miss gained more than 500 total yards against MSU on Nov. 29. “That’s a terrible job by our defensive coaching staff.”Mullen didn’t reveal who would handle the defensive play-calling in the Orange Bowl on Dec. 31 against Georgia Tech. MSU begins game-preparation today. John Haneline will coach the linebackers in Collins’ absence. Haneline is a graduate assistant who worked with the linebackers under the same title at Toledo last year.“He knows what we do,” Mullen said. “He’ll do a good job coaching those guys up.”Collins’ move didn’t come as a shock to Mullen and his staff. McElwain called Mullen on Monday to alert him of Florida’s interest in Collins. The Gators made the transaction official Tuesday afternoon.Collins had been a hot name within coaching circles the past two seasons. Reports linked him to Florida State last year and was part of the Auburn defensive coordinator converation before former Florida coach Will Muschamp landed that job last week.“I hope our guys have opportunities to go be head coaches more than leaving for lateral positions,” Mullen said. “I think (with) success, I hope we do have opportunities.”Mullen expanded upon his own future as well on Tuesday. He said neither he nor his agent have had any kind of discussions with anyone but Mississippi State athletic director Scott Stricklin.Mullen said the two parties have been working on an extension. He wouldn’t reveal how serious the talks have advanced.But he doesn’t believe he’ll be the next coach to leave Mississippi State.“Mississippi State has always been great to me and my family. We love it here,” Mullen said. “I’d imagine it’d get worked out.”Contact Michael Bonner at (601) 961-7289 or mbonner@jackson.gannett.com.
