- Ministry of Urban Development predicts that by 2030, an average speed of transport in Kochi will be of 6 to 8 km per hour, which is the speed of a morning walker, if urban transport is not properly planned and developed now, and then there will be a complete chaos.
- The present transport facilities are inadequate to handle every day demands, so there is no point in expecting some better transport system unless coming up with new technologies.
- Gridlocks and congestion are routine nowadays; they result in wastage of manpower, fossil fuels, increase pollution and act as dampeners to economic development as well as human hygiene.
- The traffic snarls force people to spend time on the road which they would otherwise spend with their friends and families or some recreation and entertainment.
- Further road development in Kochi city is very limited owing to geographical and demographical limitations forcing to think over the most convenient mode of transportation.
- The Kochi Metro Rail Project is the first move in such a direction in Kerala with an aim to convert Kochi city to Kochi metro city.
- Accessing jobs, education, livelihoods and other social needs from the outskirts into the business centre of the city would become much easier and less time consuming and quality of life will increase for the urban population.
- The average citizen of Kochi would get a reliable, safe, economic, comfortable, user friendly and punctual mode of transport at affordable rates.
