First and Last Mile Connectivity to Public Transport in Bengaluru”

Insights from the survey conducted by B.PAC

The growing number of private vehicles in the city has repeatedly highlighted the need for a better mass transport in the city. As of 2018, the share of private transport in Bengaluru exceeds the share of public transport by 3 % (Private share: 51 %, Public transport share: 48%). While it is pertinent to invest in public transport services, it is also equally important to focus on improving the connectivity to public transport – first and last mile. The lack of affordable and convenient first and last mile connectivity poses as a challenge to the commuters who take public transport. To understand the travel patterns of first and last mile connectivity of public transport users, Bangalore Political Action Committee conducted an online survey of 1129 respondents. The survey was conducted in the month of November-December, 2019. The survey was divided into segments –

  1. Users of public transport and their first and last mile connectivity to public transport
  2. Non users of public transport and their alternate mode of transport
