Today, we have techniques & technologies waiting for an opportunity to highlight the latent dimensions for a transport revolution. Once demonstrated, our cities could witness a sea change in the way we commute. Innovative transit and mobility solutions can greatly help in increasing efficiency and effectiveness, reducing delays, congestion and intensive resource dependence. In turn, such solutions have the potential to enlarge transport capacity, improve accessibility and aid urban mobility. Existing technology systems addressing our transport needs have somehow not proven to be practical to the given environment. It is evident that none of them have been able to come to the aid of planners when it comes to solving the pressing need for supply. In the meanwhile, urban transit and sustainable mobility issues have outgrown and swamped our ability to address these problems quickly and effectively. Whatever systems are being employed are too engaging and are leading to unnecessary delays in implementation.
We need solutions that can adapt themselves to flexible transit demand scenarios, be modular in scale, and when required address issues from both, geometric as well as extent perspectives.
We need to be technologically neutral to the planning objectives in order to address the requirements objectively and in an unbiased manner than the other way round... Ready off the shelf technology solutions are often found dictating the planning objectives than the other way round!
