India’s urban centres are plagued with traffic jams. The number of vehicles in our cities continues to grow, even as our supporting infrastructure fails to catch up.
To curb traffic, all major cities are investing in metro rail projects, but metro takes a lot of time to build! What do we do until then?
And let’s not forget, some localities in these cities are not even well-connected by the regular modes of public transport. It could be due to a lack of demand or because of narrow roads.
So then, what is the way out of this problem?
Surely, not everyone can afford to take a cab or an auto?
Enter car-pooling - the idea of sharing car journeys with others who may be headed in the same direction as you.
