Preparing For the Future of Urban Mobility in India

Let’s take a step back to move forward, turn around the clock and go back in time to run towards the future. Let’s stop to start. Confused? Don’t be. We are showing you the glimpse of a new India where this country is running and running towards great heights but wait – we are stuck in traffic!

To avoid this scenario, we are here to prepare you for the future of urban mobility in India and our solution is cycle. Urban mobility in present scenario is highly relied upon buses and cars which are responsible for pollution and heavy road congestion. The immediate need of the hour is to find an alternative which hits both the birds with one stone. The most feasible and cost effective way to bring this to action is by taking your bicycles out. Bicycle is a solution to a lot of problems; it takes care of the traffic issue as well as keeps you fit. We need to get out of our comfort zones and become responsible for our country. The future of urban mobility is using Public transportation like metro railways, buses, car shuttles along with walking and non-motorized vehicles like bicycles.

But with bicycles the current roads will become a problem as bicycles would definitely need a separate lane. In India usage comes and infrastructure follows. As soon as we are out on the roads with our bicycles, our government will be more than ready to restructure the roads accordingly because today everyone is looking for sustainable developments; developments that won’t hurt our nature any further as the damage that is done is irreversible and we are the ones who has to pay for that or we’re already paying the heavy price. A Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan is a strategic plan designed to satisfy the mobility needs of people and businesses in cities and their surroundings for a better quality of life. It will build on existing planning practices and will take due consideration of integration, participation, and evaluation principles.

A bicycle can be accessed by anyone and everyone. It is easy and environment friendly. Today when we all are talking about being advanced and modern then why not become sensible and responsible citizens first. The quality of atmosphere we live in is very low. We are actually inhaling un-inhalable air which has toxic elements. Traffic is not the only problem that cycling will resolve it will also give us a better life. We need to be very open minded to this change because in India cars are a highly acknowledged status symbol. The higher a person stands on the social strata the bigger his or her car is. Bicycles are widely used in many developed countries like China, UK, Netherlands, Japan, etc by all age groups and social standings.

With the advent of bicycle, we will be able to reduce accidents, underage driving can be restricted too. The solutions we were looking for everywhere was right in front of us but sadly we never really thought about it.
