Urban Transport Problem

Rapid urbanisation is taking place in India. The current urban population proportion of 28 per cent may reach 40 per cent in the coming decades. Side by side, the population of vehicles is growing at more than 10 per cent per annum. These have created serious problems or transport in towns and cities. Some of the problems are:

(a)        Severe congestion on the streets

(b)       Delays at intersections

(c)        Parking problems

(d)       High level of pollution

(e)        Serious accident situation on roads

Urgent measures are needed to overcome these problems. Modern transport systems provide possible situations.
