Narendra Modi Vision For Future Of Mobility
- Common– Public Transport must be the cornerstone of mobility initiatives. The focus must go beyond cars to other vehicles like scooters, rickshaws etc.
- Connected mobility – Integration of geographies as well as modes of transport. We must leverage full potential for vehicle pooling and other innovative technical solutions to improve private vehicle utilization.
- Convenient mobility- Safe, affordable and accessible to all sections of the society. This includes the elderly, the women and the specially abled.
- Congestion free mobility – Critical to check economic and environmental costs of congestion. Emphasis should be on ending bottlenecks of networks.
- Charged mobility – We want to drive investments across the value chain from batteries to smart charging to Electric Vehicle manufacturing.
- Clean Mobility – A pollution-free clean drive, leading to clean air and better living standards for our people. We should champion the idea of clean kilometres. This could be achieved through bio-fuels electric or solar charging.
- Connect Bharat – Infrastructure network needs to solve for all types of connectivity.
- Optimize travel footprint – Reduce congestion caused by passenger and goods flow.
- Promote seamless, co-operative transport – Efficient, convenient public transport will answer twin problems of pollution and congestion.
- Adopt green modes and technologies such as electric vehicles and non-motorized transport.
