WHY SHOULD CITIES
PARTICIPATE ?

Cities have an opportunity to work with citizens and startups to resolve the most critical problems that plague public transport through contextual solutions that are easy to implement. They will be able crowdsource solutions and choose the ones that best meet their needs and that of their citizens. They also get a chance to learn from their peers.

CONDUCT SURVEYS TO IDENTIFY PROBLEMS

Participatory planning is an important part of the Challenge. Cities must engage with citizen and operators through surveys, to understand key problems that affect public transport commuters.

FORM A TRANSPORT4ALL TASK FORCE

Cities will finalize up to five key problem statements in consultation with the Transport4All Task Force.
This is a prerequisite for Stage-1 submission.
Cities must form a Transport4All Task Force consisting of senior officials of all the city and state-level agencies responsible for the regulation and the operation of transport in the concerned city. This T4A Task Force will review the survey responses and finalise problem statements for Stage 1 submission. Going forward, the T4A Task Force will also ease coordination between the different agencies that work on public transport and facilitate the implementation of the Challenge.
The Smart City SPV will lead the Challenge as the nodal agency and coordinate with other agencies and stakeholders for its implementation.
In the absence of a Smart City SPV, the municipal corporation of the city can be the nodal agency.

SUBMISSION OF PROBLEM STATEMENTS

Cities should submit their problem statements by 4th July 2021 before 23:59 hrs (IST).
