This article talks about how the transportation system in Bogota has been changed over the years after the introduction of the services of TRANSMILENIO. With TRANSMILENIO coming into operation, the public transit has been increased because it provides better service to the daily commuters. It talks about how management and operation are being done vis-à-vis how the revenue is being distributed. It is really remarkable to note how Pedestrian in Bogota is an important arrangement having well–defined guiding principles which aim at using Pedestrian as a tourist attraction since best stores and shopping are always on pedestrian streets. The article concludes saying that India must learn the best practices being adopted in the transport system of Bogota.
