Public Transportation Planning, Multi-modal integration and Transport Demand Management Features and Challenges Primarily, private sector has been providing public transportation facilities All the airlines except one are operating privately. Means of public transport are: buses, minibuses, microbuses, tempos (three wheelers) and taxis (cars).

Public Transportation Government provides permission to the public transport providers. Government is trying to make permission system more transparent and efficient. In remote areas, even in certain districts, there is no motor road network. People are demanding for the construction of motor roads in those areas.

Public Transportation In area having motor roads, maintenance of roads has become a challenge. In certain roads authorities have started to raise funds from the vehicles for using particular roads. Government is planning to extend networks of motor-able roads to each and every districts and also to improve the quality of roads and proper maintenance.

Public Transportation Replacement of old vehicles also is a challenge. As the age of vehicles has not been declared, pollution created due to the emission of vehicle has also become a challenge for Nepal. Government in trying to implement vehicle replacement program also.

Public Transportation Scientific and appropriate system for determining fares of public vehicles has become another challenge for the country. There is 51 KM railway transport connecting Janakpur to Jayanagar (India). Out of this only 29 KM is in operation. Similarly, dry ports of Birgunj and Bhairahawa are connected directly to the Calcutta port with broad guage railway.

Initiatives taken to make transport system environmentally sustainable There is provision of compulsory environmental impact assessment for the construction of new roads and highways. Introduction of compulsory pollution testing to vehicles. Conversion of diesel engines : three wheelers into battery operating system four wheelers (esp. micro buses) into gas (LPG)system

Non motorized transport Non motorized transport varies according to the topography of the country. In southern part and other plain areas there are bicycle, rickshaw, horse driven carts as well as bullock carts. In hilly areas horses, mules and donkeys are used for transport of both goods and human beings.

Non motorized In high mountain regions especially goats and yaks are used for transport. Porters are also used for carrying goods. There is no alternative cheap means of transport to walking in many parts of the country.

Land use measures of pollution reduction in the transport sector Road construction - environment impact analysis is a must. Survey phase - Attention is given to choose the route that makes least destruction of forest and landscape and least cost required to make bridges and other necessary arrangements.

Road safety measures & public health issues related to transportation Route permission for vehicles is based on the condition of vehicle. There are criteria for route permission. The criteria permits limited number of vehicles to run in specific roads Traffic law including traffic police

Road safety . Provision of Insurance of vehicles & travelers Compulsory provision of ambulances Speed limit Punishment system Accident control measures Vehicle pollution test

Problems, Challenges and Opportunities Problems Lack of expansion of road in proportion to the increase in number of vehicles. Slow progress in the vehicular management system. Rising number of accidents. Syndicate system among private entrepreneurs. Rising pollution rate.

Challenges To Update the Vehicle and Transport Management Act and Regulation. To manage the complete record of transport and vehicles, effectively. To modernize transport management by using new technology, number plates and driving license. Availability of financial and human resources.

To make transport business competitive and service-oriented. Co-ordination among stakeholders. Old vehicles still in operation Minimum required condition of vehicle not properly followed Insurance policy Difficulty of treatment in case of accidents To expand the road network all over the country.

Opportunities Increase in revenue. Emerging private sector investment.
