Buses provide the bulk of public transport services in many Indian cities. Its share in daily travel in bigger cities can be as high as 40-60 per cent. Cities are looking at bus transport reforms to reduce auto mobile dependence, congestion, and pollution. Cities like Delhi are setting such high targets as 80 per cent public transport share by 2020, but such a goal can be met only if bus transport is scaled up.

Delhi has yet to wake up the mobility crisis. Increased use of cars is reducing people carrying capacity of roads. Total walk and cycle trips are more than double the share of car trips.
Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is organising a three-day orientation workshop, 'Solutions to pollution and mobility crisis for liveable cities' at New Delhi from August 30 - September 1, 2012. This forum will bring together a select group of grassroot actors/groups from different cities of India and South Asia to learn and share the experiences and action to combat pollution and mobility crisis to make our cities liveable. The objective of this forum is experience sharing and to promote good regulatory practices in air quality and mobility management.

Bus, walk and cycle power India’s mobility. Yet rapid motorization is snuffing life out of cities. Can Delhi and other cities reinvent the dream of mobility to get out of this urban nightmare? This needs inventive thinking, action and confidence to break out of the arrogance of old ideas!
