Delhi ready to try anything except fare-free buses

Hindustan Times: "“We build flyovers, we make signal-free stretches and we ask people to cross the road using overhead walk bridges or underground subways. We discourage them from walking and crossing the road, giving primacy to cars instead of public transport. In most developed countries.., it is people first and cars last,” she says.
The successive governments seem not to have understood the close relation between public transport and lowering pollution, she says.
Other experts agree.
“Delhi needs to improve its transport system...The commuters need to have some incentive to give up their private vehicles and a well-connected and hassle free public transport will act as that,” said PK Sarkar, head of department (transport and planning) at School of Planning and Architecture."
