ABOUT THE PARTNERSHIP

B.PAC’s B.MOBILE initiative intends to conceptualize the idea of sustainable mobility for the citizens of Bengaluru. B.PAC and Uber have collaborated on an initiative titled Sustainable Mobility for Bengaluru. The objective of the partnership is to provide a platform for the mobility service providers, civic groups and citizens to discuss and deliberate upon the topics on infrastructure for mobility, first and last mile connectivity, and sustainable and green transport options, among others.

The discussion will be focussed on two themes – ‘Efficient Transport Bengaluru’ and ‘Sustainable Transport Bengaluru’, wherein, a series of roundtable and workshop with the stakeholders and citizen group will be organized. Following are the workshop topics under each theme –

EFFICIENT TRANSPORT BENGALURU

  • Regulatory Ecosystem in Bengaluru Mobility
  • Incentivising Shift From Private Transport
  • First and Last Mile Connectivity Options in Bengaluru Mobility

SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT BENGALURU

  • Infrastructure in Mobility – Sustainable and Green Transport

At the culmination of the engagement, a report on ‘Sustainable Mobility for Bengaluru’ will be produced with inputs received from the stakeholders, subject matter experts and citizen interaction. This report will address the as is scenario on the above topics and also highlight the desired mobility for the city.

Regulatory Ecosystem
in Bengaluru Mobility

Regulatory Ecosystem in Bengaluru Mobility

There are multiple regulatory challenges that prevent new mobility service providers to offer sustainable mobility solutions in Bengaluru. Therefore, there is a need to understand the existing regulatory bottlenecks specific to the state of Karnataka and work towards creating a conducive regulatory ecosystem for shared mobility services.

Incentivising shift from private transport

Incentivising shift from private transport

Bengaluru has a lower share of public transport lagging behind Mumbai, Kolkata, and Delhi. The higher levels of congestion and pollution levels in the city require policy push and infrastructure for the use of public transport by various models of incentivizing which promotes a shift from private modes to public transport.

First and Last Mile Connectivity Options in Bengaluru Mobility

First and Last Mile Connectivity Options in Bengaluru Mobility

The usage of public transport can be promoted by ensuring seamless first and last-mile connectivity options. At present, there is no formal integration of first and last-mile connectivity service providers with the public transportation system. The first and last-mile gap could efficiently be solved through low cost and sustainable solutions.

Infrastructure in Mobility – Sustainable and Green Transport

Infrastructure in Mobility – Sustainable and Green Transport

The mobility options in the city while addressing the aspects of affordability, speed and comfort should also focus on sustainability. Through a policy push for the usage of alternate fuels and by provision of required infrastructure, green transport could be promoted in the city which is efficient and sustainable.
