What can we say About Equity in Urban Transport?

Deepak Baindur & Pooja Rao | 2016


In the context of Bangalore’s BMTC bus agency’s steep and frequent bus fare hikes between 2012 – 14, the case examines the internal and external factors that led BMTC to implement these unpopular measures. Through findings from a set of field visits and random interviews, the case will also investigate the impact these fare hikes have on individuals and families facing economic hardship as well as highlight adaptation strategies they employ to either evade or limit their travel costs and convenience.
