Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation, New Delhi






While the bus design specifications [developed by the Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD)] have already been developed, there is no policy analysis on the type of city bus system needed for various city types, their fleet requirements at the national levels. Also, public transportation generates huge amounts of data -that offer high potential to authorities and operators to find and bridge the planning and operational gaps. This workshop aims to include stakeholder’s perspectives to finalize policy papers on:
1.Estimate the quantum of bus fleet requirements at National level and types of buses
2.Identify issues with the cities who have been facing hardships in procuring or operating and maintaining UBS –II complied fleet.
3.Collaborate on developing Standardised Data Management Practices
