The Delhi government is working hard to make the city’s transportation system more user-friendly by utilizing technology, according to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Delhi Govt is working hard to make Delhi’s transport system user-friendly using technology,” Mr. Arvind Kejriwal said.

The Delhi CM made the statement through his official Twitter handle while quoting a minister’s tweet for assertion.

He quoted Kailash Gahlot, who is the Transport & Environment minister of Delhi and a member of the Legislative Assembly of Delhi.

Mr. Kailash said, “Delhites can very soon plan their bus journeys to the minute. We’re at the final lap of integrating all our public transit systems into Google India platform, which will utilize Open Transit Data of Delhi government & live data of buses to create a reliable Multi-Modal Transit planner,” he disclosed.

Delhi is heavily reliant on its transportation infrastructure. With the advent of the Delhi Metro, the city aims to build a highly efficient public transportation system, which is now undergoing fast renovation and development.

There are 16.6 million registered vehicles in the city as of 30 June 2014, which is the highest in the world among all cities, most of which do not follow any pollution emission norm (within municipal limits), while the Delhi metropolitan region (NCR Delhi) has 11.2 million vehicles.

Delhi and NCR lose nearly 42 crore (420 million) man-hours every month while commuting between home and office through public transport, due to the traffic congestion. Therefore, serious efforts, including a number of transport infrastructure projects, are underway to encourage the usage of public transport in the city.
