Centre for Science and Environment is organising a three days advance training programme for regulators on ‘Bus Reforms – Policies and Strategies’ in New Delhi from September 28– 30, 2015.
This is a specialised programme designed to help officials in developing strategies needed for an efficient and integrated bus transport system. Buses are an important mode of public transport and prime movers of people in our cities. They meet 40-60 per cent of the travel demand in cities with organised bus services. However, there is still enormous deficit in buses and bus services in most cities of India. The 12th plan has estimated that between 1980-81 to 2010-11, passenger traffic in terms of billion passenger kilometres has grown at the rate of 8.8 per cent annum. Bus transport will play a crucial role in mobility transition in our cities.
This training programme is designed to impart technical know how on the critical issues that need to be addressed to bring the required change to keep the public transport in step with the time. The programme will also facilitate interactions with a selected group of experts and resource persons to capture the learning in the region as well as demonstrate change through field trips. This programme represents our initiative to promote public transport particularly the efficient and financially sustainable bus transport that could allow greater flexibility, coverage, accessibility and cost effective travel for commuters. This interactive forum will cover lectures/presentations and interactions on following wide range of subjects and hands on exercises followed by field visits.
