Created by the ITDP India Programme for the Pune Municipal Corporation, the Pune’s Sustainable Transport Journey publication documents the city’s transformation and the various initiatives to improve walking, cycling, and public transport that led to Pune winning the international Sustainable Transport Award 2020. The Pune Municipal Corporation launched the publication in February 2021.
Pune has shown the way in embracing a holistic approach to sustainable transport. Over the last two decades, Pune has consistently taken steps to improve walking, cycling, and public transport across the city. The city has created safe, healthy, and happy streets for its people by improving walking and cycling infrastructure. The city’s foresight in launching CNG and electric buses to accelerate a shift to cleaner and greener transport has made Pune a role model for cities across the country. Lastly, Pune’s focus on putting people first by improving accessibility and inclusivity shows a citizen-centric approach to decision making.
The city’s transformation will serve as an inspiration for other Indian cities to follow Pune’s lead and take a leap towards sustainable urban mobility.
