India is the seventh largest nation in the world with a population spanning billions. Urban growth has intensified and along with it, so have the public transportation systems.
Mega cities Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata are among the largest in the world in terms of population. Rail and road travel account for a majority of public transportation in India. Economic growth has been followed by the advent of technology, and along with it, new innovations such as the monorail and the sky bus.
With lots of low cost carriers, Indian aviation has also seen a rise in the number of commuters. From the Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission to road development, several policy initiatives have taken place to change the way people use public transport in India. Several cities have started luxury bus services with improved quality of service to mitigate congestion and pollution levels. Metro and monorail services are now available and several Indian cities have also taken up the BRTS (Bus Rapid Transit System). Also on the anvil is the sky bus.
