Modes of travel to MIDC, Marol
The transition from an industrial to a business district, excellent public transport connectivity and affordable real estate prices compared to central business districts in Mumbai, positions Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) Marol as an attractive place for businesses in the western suburbs of Mumbai.
Around 46% of people working in MIDC Marol reach there by public transport. When combined with walking, bicycling and trips by private buses, this number increases to 64%. While large “hard infrastructure projects” like the metro are being built to improve mobility; “soft infrastructure projects” – such as comfortable and convenient pedestrian access have not received attention.
As MIDC Marol transforms, there is an opportunity to revitalize its image by enhancing the quality of pedestrian environments and providing safe access to public transport.
