Suburban railway to come into multimodal network
The Government of India intends to bring existing suburban rail system in urban centers into multimodal network as envisaged in the National Urban Transport Policy 2006. The policy envisages establishment of quality focused multimodal public transport systems that are well integrated, providing seamless travel across modes.
As Urban Transport is primarily a state subject, Government of India has issued advisory to all State Governments for ensuring that systems are well integrated and offer a seamless system to the users. Government of India is also taking steps for introducing common mobility card for intermodal integration.
This information was given by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Urban Development, Shri Saugata Roy in written reply to a question in Lok Sabha recently.
