Safe Access to Mass Transit Stations – A Community Engagement Program

Series: Transit Oriented Development in Indian Cities

Indian cities are growing at a phenomenal rate. Urbanization is expected to go from 33% to well beyond 40% in the next decade alone. To aid people’s movement and access to jobs and services, India is investing billions of dollars on mass transit in urban areas. However, the success of mass transit depends on providing first and last-mile connectivity leading to safe and livable environments. This is a critical component of creating a successful transit-oriented development. 

This webinar will elaborate on

  • Safe access to mass transit systems like BRT and Metro
  • Planning and deriving actionable strategies around station areas (500 – 750m radius around the transit station) 
  • An effective public engagement tool to develop ‘people-centric’ station areas
