The Promotion of Public Transport to Decongest the Traffic From Metro Areas of Mumbai Metropolitan Region

Abstract: The article explains evolution of transportation sector and concept of public transport. It links with the transportation scenarios in India and Mumbai as a case. The importance of public transportation in India and Mumbai is explained by quoting various numerical datasets published by authorities and research agencies. The development of public transport sector will mostly depend upon the total number of private vehicles and registrations. In Mumbai, currently the trend of using public transport is decreasing while on other hand private vehicles registration is increasing day by day. Proposed transportation projects of MMRDA will give relief to the internal traffic if implemented on time. But still they need to be supported by the additional planning interventions such as planning for industrial areas, business centers and growth centers on periphery of MMR. New transportation modes are required to be experimented since existing modes are insufficient to handle the public transport demand of MMR. The proposed waterway project, need for new airports and integration of last mile connectivity through public transport is emphasized relating to the proposed projects of MMRDA.
