Status of Cycling in Pune
According to Pune’s Comprehensive Mobility Plan:
“Historically Pune is known for its use of bicycles. Due to the significant slum population and student population there is a significant continued usage of bicycles in Pune. Walking and cycling constitute approximately 33-35% of the total trips in Pune. It is important that initiatives are taken to not only preserve but to enhance the share and safety of the Non-motorized Transport.”
Vehicle population has been rising manifold, and especially over the last two decades. The impacts include increased congestion and travel times, pollution, and accidents.
