Improvement in public transport and non motorized transport facilities needed urgently

The Times of India: "In a reaction on the draft budget of the Pune Municipal Corporation which was presented earlier this month by municipal commissioner Mahesh Pathak, Patwardhan said, solutions are clear - a massive and radical improvement and growth in public transport (PT) and non motorized transport (NMT) facilities. There should be a simultaneous and effective dis-incentivization on use of the personal automobile. This is fully in line with the National Urban Transport Policy ( NUTP), the Comprehensive Mobility Plan for Pune (CMP) and the world-wide thinking that measures sustainable transport through the yardstick of public transport and NMT modal share in a city''."
