Metrobus system in New Delhi has brought rich and poor

Does the solution brought to Turkey in transportation, or the implementation of the narrowing of traffic lanes due to overcrowding, as well as those who ride the Metrobus under discussion are not very satisfied, also led the class struggle in India. The most populous democracy in the world The metrobus-like transportation system to find a solution to the traffic problem in the capital of India, New Delhi, confronted the lower and middle-income populations, who use public transportation with the private car owners. The OH Bus Fast Transit olan (OHT) corridor, which has caused huge controversy since its completion in 2008, has now become a court case upon the application of private car owners.
Private vehicles won the first case
Only less than 16 of the city with a population of 20 million has a private vehicle, including scooters and motorcycles. While more than 50 of New Delhi uses buses, the rest provides transportation by bicycle, tricycle or by foot. The government, considering these figures, decided to make the roads more comfortable for bus and bike users. OHT system aims to accelerate transportation and reduce accidents for buses and bicycles. However, with the implementation of the system with two separate lanes for bicycles and buses, the space allocated to cars decreased and traffic increased for drivers. Private car owners who could not move on the roads for a long time, joined for the removal of the system. Last week, the local court decided to open the strips for buses and bicycles to private cars. The decision to determine the fate of the system will give the Supreme Court of Delhi. The Ministry of Transport, however, announced that the Delhi Supreme Court would not give up if it took a decision to lift the system and move the case to the Supreme Court, the most competent court in India.

Traf 50 bus passes through the corridor an hour. The number of cars is 40 or 50 solid. It is unfair to give so little space to car owners. Even a person with a car didn't start using a bus, it didn't help anyone, Arab he says.
