Waiting for the Bus Paying for Mobility in Our Cities
Buses will play a crucial role in the mobility transition in the big and medium rung cities. Cities need well managed, well organised modern buses that deliver efficient public transport services at affordable rates. In bigger cities that have dedicated city bus service, – not more than 12 -- buses already provide the bulk of public transport services – as much as 40-60 per cent. Most other cities have very inadequate service largely served by inter-state bus routes. Several cities are in the process of either setting it up or planning expansion.
