PMPML's Wayfinding System Report

A transit system is as usable as its wayfinding system. To understand how easy or difficult it is to travel by PMPML buses, we asked five first-time users to make a trip by the bus, unassisted. We observed their journey and interviewed them after they finished the trip to understand their experience and the challenges they faced.

Busting the Metro Myth of Ridership

myth dark for white bg2xNot a day passes without there being some news in the media about how the Pune Metro Rail project is going to liberate Pune from its traffic issues. But the little known fact is that it is steeped in a deluge of issues. Several lofty claims that Pune Metro makes are nothing but an eyewash. With the project under execution now, it indeed is time for Punekars to start the real 'Samvaad' about Pune Metro. Keeping this in mind, we are starting a 'Debunking Metro Myths' series where we will pick up one data point and try to understand, analyze and share it with everyone.
