Public Transport and Mobility


Training Programme on Clean Air and Sustainable Transportation Strategies for Liveable Cities

Air pollution is the fifth largest killer and seventh biggest illness burden in India as estimated by the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) report. The speed at which urban air pollution is growing across our cities is alarming. Severe particulate pollution and newer pollutants like nitrogen oxides, ozone and air toxics are worsening the public health challenge. Vehicles are a special challenge as these are the fastest growing sources of air pollution. Vehicles emit close to our breathing zone and contribute significantly to human exposure.

Have few minutes for a major mobility concern? - The Parking dilemma - How much to pay and for what?

This questionnaire is meant for a study aimed at preparing a MODERN, organised infrastructure for parking vehicles (cars, two-wheelers, bicycles) and also providing excellent walking and cycling facilities in and around the neighbourhood of Alaknanda Market. This would be done to remove the chaos from the market and make it more walking friendly with an orderly manner of parked cars and two-wheelers. This is important also to ease the flow of heavy traffic through the region on all sides. This questionnaire should not take you more than 10 minutes. We at CSE look forward to your valuable participation in making this research study profound and noteworthy.
