Special report: The future of mobility in Bengaluru
A new Automotive World report focuses on the evolution of mobility and transportation in Bengaluru.

Bengaluru’s growing population has given rise to the city’s dubious global reputation for traffic gridlock, and rush-hour congestion in Bengaluru (‘Bangalore’) is among the worst in India. Now the third most populous city in India, and ranked 24th in the world, Bengaluru has seen its population swell by over 40% since 2011. By 2031, the capital city of Karnataka State will be home to 20.3 million people.

The city scores high in terms of innovation momentum. Bengaluru is India’s hub for high-tech, e-commerce and start-ups—it’s also home to Daimler’s largest R&D centre outside Germany, and one of GM’s global R&D tech centres. The implementation of a smart city plan is a positive step, but in terms of future mobility, there is still much to be done to bring Bengaluru in line with other major cities.

Automotive World’s report on the future of mobility in Bengaluru explores the challenges facing one of the world’s most congested cities, and the opportunities facing stakeholders seeking to help ease traffic gridlock, improve transportation efficiency and reduce transportation-related pollution and greenhouse gases.
