To improve the public transport and decrese air, noise pollution. From Green sustainable transport to access for all. Promoting a variety of transport options – Electric, Hybrid, Transit Oriented Development (TOD), public transport and last mile para-transport connectivity; Smart Solutions in the transport sector-intelligent traffic management system and reducing average commute time .
SmartEnergy to increase the supply of renewable like solar, adequate water with smart waste management, solid waste management and create robust IT connectivity. It has to be “economically, ecologically and socially sustainable”
