Sustainability mobility for Bengaluru
As per the results of the TomTom Traffic Index, a report detailing the traffic situation across 417 cities in 57 countries, it is found that Bengaluru stands to be the most traffic congested city in the world. This stands evidence for the latent congestion in the city and the personal experiences of millions of commuters whose daily commute is tedious, time consuming and toxic. This situation urgently calls for action and signifies the need for stakeholders in the city to explore new age mobility options that will support existing and upcoming public transport infrastructure and augment its use. Public transport in the city has failed to keep up with the demands of its rapidly expanding urban population. Bengaluru, one of the fastest-growing metropolitan cities in the country, is plagued with the inadequacies of its unsustainable transportation network. Consequently, the city suffers from lower share in public transport usage, which can be attributed to the steady rise in private vehicle ownership.
