Cops take lessons in decongestion

October 19th, 2007: Mumbai traffic cops will soon convene a meeting of top school administrators to showcase a model school bus service. A brainchild of activist Indrani Malkani, the service has reduced traffic outside Cathedral & John Connon School in Fort to a large extent.

The use of the school bus service by 94 per cent students of the school has taken 716 cars off the school€™s street during peak traffic hours. Buses, 52 in all, converge on the three roads where the junior, middle and senior sections of the school are situated. €œWe would like all schools to adopt this model for reducing traffic and vehicular pollution considerably,€ said S S Solunke, DCP (Traffic), South.
