When we talk of Urban Transport, we are mainly talking about the situation of Public Transport in Metro cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad and Pune, or basically we are talking about the present state of affairs of these cities as regards their public transport efficiency, adequacy and affordability.

When it comes to Urban Transport or Urban Public Transport efficiency, the name that naturally pops up in mind is Mumbai – the city which has the most efficient integrated Public Transport system, compared to any other city in India. What is more creditworthy to achieve this distinction are the odds that are placed against this city – Most populated city in India, highest density of private vehicles per thousand population, maximum distance covered per trip, city with infrastructure that is bursting at its seams, city with highest percentage of public transport usage and above all a city which has the highest number of outside influx per day compared to any other city in India.

So what makes Mumbai’s Public Transport system most efficient?
