TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute) is organizing a round table session to share the findings of a research study on 'Improving Informal Public Transport Systems in Indian Cities' on June 24, 2015 at the Conference Room, TERI, IHC. The session will facilitate a debate on how to improve these public transport systems to derive maximum mobility benefits at the least environmental and social costs. It will also include screening of the film that has been prepared by TERI as a part of the study.
The research study concluded by TERI was conducted in support of the Department for International Development (DFID), Government of United Kingdom (UK). It aimed at understanding the role and contribution of informal transport modes in meeting mobility needs, identifying key issues associated with their operations, and suggesting solutions for improving these systems at the city, state and national level. The study outputs aim to positively influence relevant transport policies and regulations related to the informal public transport sector in India.
