The Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD)’s National Urban Transport Policy (NUTP) emphasises the principle of ‘moving people, not vehicles’, and has since provided 63 cities with funding for more than 15,000 buses, as well as supported 12 cities with funding support to implement BRT projects. However, there is still a need of more efficient, accessible, reliable, affordable and safe bus services in our country, in order to make them a preferred choice of mobility for a majority of people.
