This thesis project provides a proposal of sustainable urban transportation plan (i.e.)Mobility plan for the Bangalore city in India. A sustainable urban transportation planis an integrated plan considering all modes of transport that is planned towards asustainable urban development. The measures implemented are a mixture of physicalchanges and information with the aim to reach better.Bangalore, the capital of the State of Karnataka, the third largest city in India wasonce called as garden city in India. Now like other Indian Cities, Bangalore is alsosuffering from severe and worsening transport problems: congestion, energy use, airpollution, noise, traffic injuries and fatalities, loss of green, parking shortages and alack of mobility for the poor. This is all due to the rapid urbanisation faced by the cityin recent years.Unless the problems of motorization can be effectively dealt with, there will beincreases in greenhouse gases, acceleration in climate change and rapid depletion ofa range of non-renewable resources. My proposals advocates a slowdown in themassive roadway investments and a shift in emphasis in expanding and improving theinfrastructure facilities for public transport, cycling and walking in the city. Making avisionary plan for the city’s future would solve certain problems and improve thequality of life in the city.
