Restricting Vehicle Movement in Delhi

December 14th, 2015

Delhi announced a series of emergency measures to cut ambient PM2.5 pollution this winter season. One of the measures deals with restricting the on-road private vehicles during the day time (8:00 AM to 8:00 PM) from January 1st, 2016 to January 15th, 2016. Below is an infograph putting the intervention into perspective.

We assess that for a smooth transition to private-vehicle-free roads in Delhi, this intervention will require an additional 13,000 buses. To date, the Delhi Transport Corporation managed to assemble 600 of the promised 6,000 buses.
