The strategic response is to upgrade the transit system, introduce Bus Rapid Transits (BRT), implement improved non-motorized transport (NMT) infrastructure and apply travel demand management (TDM) as well as other supporting policies. Substantial GHG reductions can be expected through citywide upgrading of the transit systems.
