As highlighted in the preceding chapters, there is a good stock of theoretical and empirical knowledge, which has been generated over time to address various urban transport problems. Important policy insights have been drawn out of this knowledge base, which are further translated into a wide range of practical policy measures. Despite the fact that most of these policy measures were first worked out to respond to the urban transport problems in developed cities, they are equally useful and potentially effective to address the transport problems in Asian megacities. Many developing Asian megacities have made concerted efforts to address emerging urban transport problems. However, urban transport condition in these megacities is continuously degrading. Now the question is: Where does the problem lie?
