Development by bus: urban development and bus-based public transport

Keeping in mind that Maharashtra is a highly urbanized State with 27 Municipal Corporations (the most in any State in India) and given the contribution by the cities to the State’s economy, the Urban Development Department of the Government of Maharashtra plays a vital role in recognizing these connections and taking steps to ensure that all cities have robust and sustainable bus-based public transport. This report summarizes the learnings from those discussions and are included in the recommendations as well as the public statement that over 50 professionals, experts, academicians and organizations have endorsed. Hope that this report is well received and along with the other sectoral reports forms a comprehensive and compelling argument for the State to seriously consider reforms that will make “Lakh ko 50” a reality.
