Stakeholders of the city's transport on Tuesday agreed that rapid urbanisation is throwing up mobility issues, which can only be addressed by a Unified Metropolitan Transport Authority (UMTA). At the stakeholders' workshop conducted by NGO, Praja RAAG, officials from various departments were convinced of the need for UMTA at the level of Bangalore Metropolitan Region Authority (BMRDA).
