UITP INDIA SEMINAR ON URBAN RAIL NETWORK – BUILDING SUSTAINABLE CITIES

Introduction

Transport infrastructure is one of the most important factors for a country's progress. To keep this faster pace, for moving people, urban rail projects are playing a crucial role not only as a transportation solution but as a means to transform cities. 52.8% of India's population would be living in cities and towns by mid-century compared to 32.8% in 2015, i.e. more than 750 million inhabitants.

Decoding Public Transportation: In conversation with UITP India (MotorIndia - August 2018)

We live in a world where our surrounding landscapes are rapidly changing. Cities are changing, new towns bubble up, and so are economic priorities and policies of the society. Mobility emerged as a critical priority in the last century, but now in our times, the need for transportation has reached a climacteric phase, where its ends and meets are put to question. Without reliable mobility, cities become fragmented, people get struck in their lives, and economies take a beating, while the existing mobility systems themselves bray without sustainability.
