Unreliable last mile connectivity impacts the overall quality and usage of mass transit and results in a mode share shift of public transport. While efforts are being made to improve mass public transport, last mile connectivity has to be improved and linked to existing services. An integrated transport system will aid in ease of access for users. There is a need to improve pedestrian and bicycle access to mass public transport within residential, commercial, industrial and institutional districts in our cities. Facilitating improved accessibility for pedestrians and bicyclists will not only encourage active transport among residents but will minimize the use of private vehicles and enhance the quality of life for city dwellers.
