    Indian cities are characterised by rapid growth in human as well as motor vehicle populations. Although the poor benefit the least from motor vehicle activity, they bear the brunt of its impacts. The policy challenge is, how to fulfill mass mobility needs, while minimizing these adverse impacts. But while the need to meet this and other urban challenges grows ever more urgent, Indian cities face severe resource constraints. The paper addresses the question of how to meet this policy challenge, given the realities of the Indian context.
