Transportation : A Strategic Perspective Transport infrastructure is of key importance in determining the land use patterns. Efficient transport provides mobility to citizens that is essential for development of skilled urban labour market. Historically the sea port and the railways have been the most important inputs to the phenomenal growth of Mumbai. As this sector is very sensitive to technological developments and behavioural changes a long term end state plan cannot be meaningfully prepared. What is necessary is to identify a broad strategy within which detailed short term investment programmes could be developed.

Sustainable Transport Systems: A sustainable transport system must provide mobility and accessibility to all urban residents in a sate and environment friendly mode of transport. This is a complex and difficult task when the needs and demands of people belonging to different income groups are not only different but also often conflicting. For example, if a large proportion of the population cannotafford to use motorised transport - private vehicles or public buses - then they have to either walkorride bicycles to work. Provision of safe infrastnicture for bicyclists and pedestrians may need segregation of road space for bicyclists and pedestrians from motorised traffic or reduction in speeds of vehicles. Both measures could result in restricting mobility of car users
Mobility for development This case study has been prepared for the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) by the Department of Urban Planning

Congestion Pricing Congestion pricing ? sometimes called value pricing ? is a way of harnessing the power of the market to reduce the waste associated with traffic congestion. Congestion pricing works by shifting purely discretionary rush hour highway travel to other transportation modes or to off-peak periods, taking advantage of the fact that the majority of rush hour drivers on a typical urban highway are not commuters. By removing a fraction (even as small as 5%) of the vehicles from a congested roadway, pricing enables the system to flow much more efficiently, allowing more cars to move through the same physical space. Similar variable charges have been successfully utilized in other industries ? for example, airline tickets, cell phone rates, and electricity rates.There is a consensus among economists that congestion pricing represents the single most viable and sustainable approach to reducing traffic congestion
URBAN TRANSPORTATION The travel demand in Mumbai is estimated to be about 200 million person trips per day, next only to Delhi (225 million ptpd) in India6. Mumbai has a good coordinated pubic transport system and is known to be the best system in India. About 85 per cent of the total trips are carried out through mass transport systems, almost equally divided among bus transport provided by Bombay Electric Supply and Transport (BEST) Corporation, an MCGM undertaking and the suburban railway system operated by Central and Western Railway Divisions of Indian Railways.
