City Transport in India

Public transport consumes less space per passenger and leads to lower congestion. This article recommends that both incentives and disincentives (for private transport) are needed to promote the use and sustainability of public transport in India. Incentives include better quality and more comfortable public transport with higher frequency of trips, low waiting time and a unified transport system. Disincentives for private transport must include higher parking and toll charges.
