India Sustainable Mobility Initiative

01 Sep 2015 to 31 Mar 2024


To provide efficient mobility for the 200 million new urban dwellers expected by 2030 and mitigate the use of private vehicles and GHG emissions, India must achieve a dramatic increase in high-quality rapid transit and improvements in walking and cycling infrastructure and urban development patterns. Working with national, state, and city-level government stakeholders, the initiative will achieve a shift to low-carbon transport modes. The project will help develop urban transport policies and investments that prioritize low-carbon mobility. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has developed a catalog that includes advice and capacity development for investments in pedestrian and bicycle paths and the expansion of vehicle fleets in public transport. The project will work at the national level to produce guidance that accelerates subnational projects and policies, and with the states to institutionalize methodologies for transport planning.
