India has witnessed a rapid growth in number of vehicles from 5.4million in 1981 to 210 million in 2015. This increase in number of vehicles had led to problems like increase in air pollution, traffic congestion, has impacted the overall wellbeing of people and economic efficiency of cities. In-spite of heavy investment in infrastructure projects in cities the problem of traffic congestion has not been solved one of the main reason behind this is that in our country transport projects are not integrated to urban planning unlike other countries of the world. This should be done in order to solve the problem of congestion in the city. One way to decongest the city can be to promote app based transport services to encouraging people to use public transport, rather than their private cars.
