Our metros are famous for one common thing. That is traffic. It is very difficult to manage it while going office. How you're managing traffic in your city. How will you plan or what will you prefer public transport or own transport? For me my organisation providing vehicle to reach office at right time. So i've to catch that before 1/2 hr of office time. So nothing in my hand. How you managing? Share your ideas.

Hi dear, Even my organisation have provided shuttle bus services. But as I am located with a different office premises and only walkable distance from a railway station, I have not issue with traffic. But in many cities, the traffic is a real problem. Yesterday when I met a friend of mine in the train and he was telling that once get down from the train, he need to walk for 35-40 mts. to office and if he travel by a bus to the same office, it will take minimum 1 hour. So, it is better to walk. He advised. So, our traffic system is so great. Regards, Thank-s

Hi dear, I like walking also. But, after a horrible fightful train journey of 2 hrs, and walk for 1/2 hr. every day will be tiresome and when reach at office will get so tired. Just managing. Here in such cases, we are totally helpless, but face the consequences. Also, the over bridge constructions are in progress at various places and still on-going. This is another reason for the traffic. Apart from this, at various locations the road sides were unearthed for cable planting and renovation purposes etc. These all will contribute the trouble to the crow forever. Can't expect such things will come to an end because these developmental works are never get expires. Best regards and have a nice day. Thank-s

i dont live in a metro ....i live in a small city of maharashtra....so traffic is not a big problem for me....ya its a problem for me but not a big problem....i reach my college on my bike in just 10 minutes ....my college is 7 km away from my house... as my college dont provide buses for students like other colleges so everyone from my college has their own way of reaching college...autos or bikes or city bus.... you cant manage the traffic acc to me....the best way is leave home earlier so that you can reach your office/college earlier..... happy mylotting

I think if we follow traffic rules correctly, and increase the public transport usage, traffic problem may reduce.
