Dr. A. S. Trivedi | Zoeb Taizoon Dohadwala
Abstract: In recent years, traffic congestion, traffic accidents, and deterioration of the environment because of growing population, increase in urbanization, and increase in car ownership have become serious problems in the urban cities of India. Urban transport crisis is faced by almost every Indian city, of all sizes. All cities face the ever-increasing problems of congestion, traffic accidents, air, and noise pollution despite investments in road development and infrastructure, and plans for land use and transport development. There is an increase in growth of personal vehicles and different forms of intermediate public transport provided by the informal sector which are struggling to meet the mobility demands of city residents. Thus, there is a need to provide a suitable city bus service system or urban mass transit system for towns which are growing at a rapid pace and are also a part of urban area. This urban mass transit system should be convenient, affordable and accessible. Therefore, this study defines the need of feasibility and demand for public transport system.
