The capital city Hyderabad roads are always crowded with people. People are coming out on the roads due to various reasons like for attending their regular duties, shopping, eating, meeting friends and so on. As a result, Hyderabad roads are getting overcrowded and motorists are facing traffic congestion problems. A recent study by the state government made these points clear. With this, the government has decided to change the appearance of city roads. The sector is preparing to make the public transport system more accessible. Government is also planning to expand the information technology system to reduce the average man’s travel distance. In the metropolitan Hyderabad, many people are staying away from public transport and using their own personal vehicles even for small needs. In order to change people behaviour and to reduce the average travel distance of people within the city, GHMC is planning to take all the necessary measures. For this evolution and in order to control the number of vehicles on the road, it has decided to support online shopping, carpooling and bike-sharing initiatives. Along with this GHMC is also planning to make public transport systems like MMTS, Metro and BRTS more accessible for the public.
