Bus Priority Hours

Can we free up our roads for public transport vehicles, for 1 hour, by requesting people to not use their private vehicles?

In the morning and evening. 8:30 to 9:30 AM, 5:30 to 6:30 PM. All weekdays.

How does this help?

1. Most traffic congestion on roads happens during peak hours on weekdays. Both public and private transport vehicles compete for the limited road space. By yielding to public transport for 1 hour, we can help cities transport lot of people to their offices in less time.

2. Some people who are willing to use public buses, still can't use it because they are very slow. They are slow because there are lot of private vehicles on the road. Its a chicken and egg problem. With Public Transport Hours, we can make public transport vehicles move faster.

3. Cabs are public transport, even if there is only passenger or only one human in a self-driving cab. By yielding roads to cabs, we'll be helping cab drivers to earn more during the morning rush hour, by completing more trips.
