India is the second largest country in terms of population with over 1.2 billion people and is continuously growing. Although there are varying modes of transportation including by land, water and air, access to all modes isn’t uniform across the country.
Private vehicles are used by the more affluent community and there are only about 103 million on the road and only 10% of households own a motorcycle. The primary mode of transportation is public transit, the most common being buses.
As a result of high bus usage, the government created an initiative in Delhi, the Indian capital, to reduce traffic congestion by creating an experimental fast lane for buses. This Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor system allows bus users a smoother ride and reduce traffic congestion.
