Public transport information needs to be available in different mediums to serve our diverse communities.

Do you know that without matatus the capital of Kenya comes to standstill? It is the only major industry in Kenya that is entirely locally owned and controlled. It is said that modern Nairobi could not have taken shape without the invention of this colourful vehicle. In the 1950s, mini-buses started as illegal operations in Hong Kong. Recognising the travel needs and significance of paratransit, the HK Government began to issue licences to the mini-buses.

Motorised paratransit such as autorickshaws and share auto-rickshaws are popular across India. They are perfect for short-distance commutes and reaching major public transits. They are fast, easy and plentiful. Regularising this sector by providing route maps, pick up/drop off points and parking spaces, will fully tap into the potential of these modes.

Mobility options are as diverse as our country! Paratransit fills a gap by connecting us to public transport or by providing transport in localities where buses and trains don't venture. Whether you call them auto-rickshaws, share autos, chakdas, minivans, electric rickshaws or minibuses, they all help make public transport more #accessible. Which ones have you used? Comment below.

And unless these needs are met, the trend of switching to private transport will continue. This survey seeks to understand how Chennai's public transport users access and use information and the gaps therein.
