The Union Cabinet has approved signing and implementation of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH) and ‘Transport for London’. Transport for London is a statutory body established under the Greater London Authority Act, 1999 (UK) to improve Public Transport in India.
The MoU will help to improve the overall public transport system in country, improve passenger services and promote use of high capacity buses in India. It will go long way in strengthening ties and promoting bilateral relations between India and UK. It will also help in strengthening integrated public transport for all. This will help people from poorer strata of society to have access to a quality public transport system.
