India - cars don't move enough people to justify the road space they use

Times of India: "He said there was a huge outlay for construction of roads and national highways. "But emphasis should be given to allow more road space for public transport vehicles such as BEST buses in Mumbai," he said. A survey had shown that public transport buses carried more passengers, compared to private vehicles, but occupied not more than 15% road space. In Mumbai, the motor vehicle population has increased to 26 lakh, with more than 8 lakh being private cars, with most of them polluting city roads."
