Mediating Public–Private Transportation
An estimated 7.2 million people use Mumbai’s train system every workday. During peak commuting periods, trains built for 1,700 riders are packed with about 4,500 people. Though only an estimated 8 percent of commuters use private vehicles, the roads are also stretched past capacity, with authorities registering 250 new vehicles every day. This session will draw on plans for the Kala Nagar traffic junction to seek the opinions of advocates for public transport and private vehicles and arrive at a consensus on how resources can be allocated to benefit both constituencies.
