Abstract:

Mobility is a major concern in many Indian cities, due to inadequate transport infrastructure, increased usage of private vehicles, traffic congestion, pollution and lack of integration between land use and transport planning thus, undermining the cities' efforts to meet global standards of living. Recently, liveability has received more importance due to the degrading condition in the quality of life in metropolitan cities. The Government of India has also formulated 79 indicators in 15 categories in order to measure the liveability standards of 116 Indian cities focusing on four main aspects such as institutional, social, economic and physical that affects the quality of life. The aim of this work is to develop and evaluate sustainable transport measures that improves the liveability of Bengaluru Metropolitan Region (BMR) which includes Bengaluru urban district, Bengaluru rural district and Ramnagara. The quantitative evaluation of sustainable transport mitigation and adaptation measures aimed to improve the liveability of Bengaluru in terms of; reduced traffic congestion (VKT), reduced exhaust emissions (PM, CO, NOX, HC etc.), reduced greenhouse gas emissions (CO2), reduced carbon emission intensity w.r.t. GDP growth, increased consumer surplus of sustainable modes, and also improved resiliency of transportation system has been done in the study. The same was done by comparing the Business as Usual scenario and various sustainable transport scenarios, for the base year and the future years 2030 and 2050. It is expected that the findings of this work will provide more scientific and evidence based decision support for framing right kind of sustainable transport planning and policy measures to make Bengaluru more liveable. Also, the basic principles and developed methodology from this study can be applied to other Indian cities as well to develop similar measures aimed at improving their liveability.
