"More focus on demand management" #itsthedemand Bangalore #publictransit

Petrol price hike opens doors for mass transit | Deccan Chronicle: "“From the mobility perspective, since there is much more focus today on demand management measures than supply centric (primarily road infrastructure based) measures, rise in petrol prices can be strategically used to disincentivize commuters to use personal vehicles and encourage them to use more sustainable modes of transport like public transport,” said Verma.

The focus therefore should be making mass transport more and more affordable. “Here it is very important to ensure that how rise in petrol and diesel prices does not lead to increase in public transport fares, which is a common strategy the public transport companies generally adopt to compensate the effect of fuel price rise."
