Demand for Public Transport Affecting All

Rapid economic development exerts pressure on all infrastructure services vital for economic efficiency and social sustainability, particularly transport infrastructure. In India, sustaining this increase in economic productivity is contingent on meeting the mobility demand that such economic growth creates, and hence on optimally utilizing existing infrastructure (Justus (1998); Gowda (1999)). In addition, transport accounts for a substantial and growing proportion of air pollution in Indian cities, contributes significantly to greenhouse gas emissions, and is a major consumer of energy (Ramanathan and Parikh (1999)). Transport is also the largest contributor to noise pollution, and has substantial safety and waste management concerns (Singh (2000)). Finally, access to transport services is considered critical for addressing equity concerns by facilitating access to primary education and employment generation facilities. Transport infrastructure is also important for integrating rural communities in the socioeconomic structure of the nation.

This calls for a greater share of public transport in meeting mobility needs. Not only is an efficient public bus system important for meeting the mobility needs in this rapidly growing economy, but a higher share of bus transport would also reduce pollution, both local and global, and energy demand. Hence, it is incumbent on governments in developing countries to institute appropriate policy initiatives to increase the share of public transport.

Such interventions must be informed by research that identifies factors influencing the demand for public transport. The most common method for characterizing the influence of such variables is by estimating the elasticity of demand with respect to each of these variables.This means there will be an increase in job opportunities for Driving Assistants.
