Planning, Design And Engineering Of Sustainable Urban Transport And Systems by A. K. Jain
Book Summary:

A singnificant aspect in the context of congestion and pollution, relates to the growth in personalized transport as compared to the availability of public transport. It is estimated that buses, which constitute barely 1.2 percent of the total number of vehicles, cater to around 60 percent of the total transport load, while personal Vehicles cater around only 30 percent of the travel demand.

So far public transport is largely seen as the transport mode for the not so well off and poorer sections of the community, who cannot afford to own\use personal transport. An important element of National Urban Transport Policy is to shift private vehicle users to public transport.

Apart from aspects like frequency, inter-modal integration, a possible single ticketing systems, parking policy, the quality transport, particularly buses, would need to be significantly upgraded, inter-alia, keeping in view the element of clean and green fuel and traffic calming for sustainable transport.
