Need good public transport before curbing cars

Times of India: ""The Delhi pilot cannot be replicated in Mumbai unless the public transport system is strengthened. It is so tragic that we are simply ignoring the BEST, which is the lifeline of Mumbai. The state and civic authorities should support fund the bus undertaking and ensure there are 1,000 air-conditioned buses on roads, which ply on dedicated lanes across the city. This could be a game changer," said transport expert Rishi Aggarwal. "Once you give citizens the option of a strong public transport to go to work, you can then dissuade car owners to stay off roads." "
