Geetam Tiwari, Professor of Transport Planning in the Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Delhi, on Monday, called upon decision makers to consider the impact of transport hazards on health.

She also recommended that programmes be designed to help implement sustainable public transport across the country. Speaking at the fourth edition of the Volvo Nobel Memorial Seminar 2012, she admitted that while public transport has evolved, technology alone cannot address the ill-effects of bad transport on the health of people.
