Dynamics of Urban Mobility : A Comparative analysis of megacities of India
This paper aims to analyse urban mobility patterns and consequent impacts on energy and environment in India. We investigate the quantity of energy use in 23 metropolitan regions for the period 19812005 and present empirical results obtained using national and urban data sets. It explores the underlying relationship among three dependent variablesenergy intensity, type of mode and passenger km. Patterns of energy consumption and CO2 emissions in private and public transport are examined. Some policy recommendations are outlined to reduce urban transport energy use and greenhouse gases and provide suggestions to achieve sustainable urban mobility.
