Parwez also highlighted efforts by the BMRCL to ensure last-mile connectivity for all users.

"BMRCL has been getting a lot of support from start-ups in mobility to ensure commuters have last-mile connectivity. We are also tying up with mobility providers to get people to reach the nodal point and commute to their workplaces," he said.

"The biggest challenge in urban mobility is integration of multi-modal transport systems and to move people into public transport from personalised transport modes," he added.

Meanwhile, Bengaluru Metro recently allowed commuters the option to buy tickets via a QR code. Parwez said this move had received good response from metro users.
