Delhi Bus Corridor Evaluation

By Dario Hidalgo & Madhav Pai

EMBARQ transport experts Dr. Dario Hidalgo and Madhav Pai evaluated the Delhi bus corridor in February 2009. A set of meetings and interviews with local planning and implementing agencies formed the basis of recommendations and analysis presented in this report. On three separate occasions, Dr. Hidalgo and Mr. Pai visited the bus corridor, where they examined pedestrian and cycle facilities, bus lanes and stations, and motor vehicle lanes. Although the study is primarily intended for a technical audience, it also addresses several of the major concerns raised by the general public and news media. Its findings were presented to Rakesh Mehta, chief secretary of the Delhi Government and DIMTS.
