National urban transport policy 2006

National urban transport policy 2006 The objective of this policy is to ensure safe, affordable, quick, comfortable, reliable and sustainable access for the growing number of city residents to jobs, education, recreation and such other needs within the cities. This is sought to be achieved by: incorporating urban transportation as an important parameter at the urban planning stage rather than being a consequential requirement; encouraging integrated land use and transport planning in all cities so that travel distances are minimized and access to livelihoods, education, and other social needs, especially for the marginal segments of the urban population is improved; improving access of business to markets and the various factors of production; and bringing about a more equitable allocation of road space with people, rather than vehicles, as its main focus.
