This chapter compares transport planning in India with those in other countries. London, for instance, has a noteworthy system as far as good urban planning is concerned. The city follows a unique cascaded model of urban planning that works largely because of a clear mandate and roles assigned to the various organizations involved in London’s urban planning effort. Singapore’s rise from a congested city to a thriving financial centre is attributed to a robust urban planning system which is the responsibility of the urban development authority. Indian cities have not been able to cope with the demand for transport. The main reason for this is the prevailing imbalance in the modal split, besides inadequate transport infrastructure and its sub-optimal use.
