With significant economic growth expected over the next two decades, India’s cities face the challenge raising productivity and efficiency of their transport systems.

Where to next?
With increasing congestion, environmental concerns and budgetary constraints, safeguarding urban mobility is one of the biggest challenges in our society.
The quick and efficient movement of people and goods is a crucial issue – one of the drivers of global competitiveness and quality of life. People expect their daily mobility to become more flexible, reliable and affordable. Cities, on the other hand, must deal with limited space and find ways to reduce costs, noise and emissions their transport systems produce.
Every year, about 10 million people move from the countryside into India’s cities. The pressure on city authorities is already high and it's growing all the time. The transport industry is seeking solutions that will enable the existing infrastructure to cope. Ensuring seamless mobility in the future will require networked transportation and information systems that encompass all modes of transport.
A multimodal and integrated transport system is critical for any nation. It directly impacts the nation’s environment, quality of life, and economic growth.
By the end of the next decade, cities will be home to about 40% of all Indians and contribute 75% of the country’s GDP. Planning and developing smart cities and infrastructure is critical to the success of India’s economy.
A city’s transport system has a direct impact on its environment, quality of life, and its ability to generate jobs. A safe and efficient transport system is needed to move people and goods using as little energy as possible with minimal noise. Cities must begin now to optimize their existing infrastructure to increase capacity, cut waiting times, and ensure it provides a viable service for citizens.
Planning authorities need to take a Smart City approach and ensure their infrastructure integrates with other services and platforms. An integrated mobility platform can give citizens an overview of available transport services, intelligently combined with individual means of transport. It also makes it easier for operators to incorporate complimentary mobility services into their own portfolio, ultimately simplifying planning, booking, and charging for intermodal transport services.
The best networks minimise passengers’ travel time and optimise their daily lives. Solutions will differ based on local needs and the ability to invest. But for all cities, technology can maximize existing capacity and improve quality.
