Tremendous wave in mass rapid transit systems (MRTS), smart and connected devices, smart cities are having a positive effect on the quality of living across the world.
Before predicting the future of mass transit, it is necessary to do a quick analysis of what it might compete with in the future.
Mass transit is advantageous in reducing pollution in big cities, as the number of fuel-guzzling private vehicles on the roads increases, the higher the air pollution. A huge number of cars on the road also result in traffic jams and which further leads to higher road accident deaths, diminishing the quality of life in more ways than one. Some quick steps need to be taken into account if we want the public to opt for mass transit over their private vehicles.
