Roads & Transit

City life revolves around the
transport system. It enables
people to work, learn and interact,
and supports economic growth.

Increasing urbanization puts pressure on infrastructure. Citizens and business are frustrated by congestion while pollution limits liveability and makes cities unattractive for business startups.

Governments must increase transportation capacity and offer safe, efficient public transport that streamlines citizens’ movement through cities.

Technology can improve public transportation so that citizens choose mass transit over cars. Replacing paper tickets with transit cards and tap-n-go payments and providing real-time service information improves convenience.

Investment in intelligent transportation infrastructure such as rapid transit or bus rapid transit is expensive: many cities find it difficult to finance transport. However, technologies such as automated fare collection can reduce long-term costs.
