Speak up Delhi: Defunct bus stops expose public transport’s dismal condition 14.8.2017 DNA: India
The Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) bus stops in Greater Kailash-1 are now used only by the adverstisers or those seeking to steal a quick nap in the middle of the day. Some of these defunct bus shelters have either not been upgraded in years or the buses do not stop there anymore. Most of the bus stops had turned non-functional after the 2010 Commonwealth Games following the change in routes of many buses. Now the benches are all corroded or broken, while buses stop at make-shift stops metres away from them. One of these, located opposite the Archana Cinema, once had modern infrastructure and still has a number of routes displayed on its board, but no DTC bus service is available for these routes from the stop. For those living in nearby colonies, no public transport system is available, except for auto-rickshaws. In areas connecting outer Delhi, such as Khanpur, Alipur, Narela, and Bawana, among others, where a large population is dependent on the bus service, again, the bus stops are either defunct ...

Despite increase in ridership, Metro-1 incurring loss 14.8.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
BEST buses are not the only loss-making public transport system in the city, data obtained by DNA under Right To Information (RTI) Act, reveal that despite a steady increase in ridership, Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar Metro-1 corridor is facing a huge revenue deficit and is running in losses with the operator spending more than double the amount compared to the income. Reliance Infrastructure-led Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL)'s expenditure to operate Metro-1 stood at about Rs 1,500 crore between June 2014 and June 2017. However, the latter could merely earn about Rs 640 crore in the form of ticketing and non-ticketing revenue in that period. In a RTI reply dated August 10, 2017, MMOPL revealed its gross income via ticketing revenue between June 2014 and June 2017 stands at Rs 5,79,71,45,418 crore followed by Rs 66,42,30,629 crore through non-ticketing revenue between the same period.

Citizens' group does survey on pedestrian rights 11.8.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Citizens for Bengaluru (CfB) is conducting a survey for pedestrian rights, especially along the Namma Metro line. The survey 'Walk in my Shoes' aims to assess the problems faced by pedestrians like safety, last-mile connectivity to Metro stations and pedestrian infrastructure.

Every person who uses public transport is a walker who walks from home to Metro stations and to bus stops. From this survey, we are trying to identify issues faced by pedestrians." CfB volunteers will pose 15 questions to pedestrians like how they reach the Metro station and bus stops, if they are aware of Metro feeder services, do they feel safe while crossing the road or walking and if bus services have been integrated with the Metro. CfB volunteers have been visiting various locations to understand the issues faced by pedestrians. The survey was conducted near Metro stations and junctions near Metro stations.
