Government Policies

  • National urban transport policy adopted by UPA in 2006. However, it hasn’t been implemented properly by the states

  • Provides for creation of a statutory United Metropolitan Transport Authority to coordinate and streamline infrastructure creation and land use, and integrate bus, rail and feeder services.

Solutions

  • Fare structure for comfortable bus travel must be pegged at less than the marginal cost of using a two-wheeler.

  • Walking and bicycling should be prioritized and the integrated use of buses and trains promoted with the single-ticket concept
