Kathmandu needs to double its #publictransit

Needed: political will for public transport | Nation | Nepali Times: "Unreliable and congested vehicles have forced commuters to rely on two-wheelers and cars which in turn exacerbate the traffic crisis, increasing pollution, and adding to the country’s fuel bill.

Transit experts say Kathmandu needs to at least double its existing public transport capacity to meet the demand of a rising population. The road-widening campaign started by Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai in 2012 unblocked the city’s main arteries, but experts say it is not a sustainable solution."
