In December, 2015, we released an infographic on possible benefits of restricting the on-road vehicles during the day time. Below is an emissions analysis comparing the emission rates from the passenger vehicles during a regular day and an odd/even day, based on what we understood has transpired during the two weeks of January, 2016.
Based on the monthly and seasonal air quality trends, April is one of the months with better air quality, compared to January. Question – do we need to repeat the experiment to know what is good for us, again? We will stick with our assessment on the need for an additional 15,000 buses in the city, to support a safe, comfortable, and reliable public transportation system, which will eliminate any need for such experiments.
