Shaping the way cities move...
Recent rapid urban development in Karnataka has resulted in transport problems, such as traffic congestion and an increase in traffic accidents. Although the national and state governments have made substantial efforts to improve urban transport, problems have been worsening by the rapidly increasing number of private vehicles. It is important to prepare long-term strategic plans focused on mobility of people as a basis for developing cost-effective and equitable urban transport measures with an appropriate and consistent methodology, in line with the National Urban Transport Policy (NUTP).
