Conference On Building Lives By Ensuring Sustainable Mobility In Gurugram

In the quest for becoming one of the largest metropolises in India, the city of Gurugram also served as a foundation for the largest urban agglomeration in the world. However, with the crunch for land and other natural resources, one of the major concerns was accessibility and availability of public transport.

DLF Foundation conceived the idea of venturing into sustainable public transit, serving as an inception point to adopt sustainable mobility with last-mile connectivity, reinforcing the current transportation practices.
