Today, we know one thing for sure that the entire world is in need of change – a set of decisive moves to make the world a better place to live in. In times of chaos like this, every sector is going through a lot of change and it is necessary that we also step up and make our contribution in bringing about a better environment. The transportation sector also needs to go through a series of changes and we are here to make the alterations. Let us take a look at the various dimensions we can contribute to for making this planet better. If you ask why we need to change, the answer is simple. Take a look around and see for yourself. The roads are not good enough for daily commute. The potholes on the road pose a serious danger for the passengers on road. The number of accidents reported on a daily basis in this country is a proof to that. That is not all. The roads are heavily congested. The big cities face a similar problem- the traffic jam. Imagine the productivity that would have resulted with the time wasted being stuck on the roads. The congestion on the roads has been a headache in the big cities and the government has tried various ways to curb the problem, like building more flyovers and expanding the roads and so on. The problem, to say in simple words is that, there are simply more vehicles on road than it can accommodate. To solve the problem, there are more and more trees cut down and its effects have been reciprocated from the nature and we can feel that with the prolonged summers and unfit weather conditions for sustenance. The pollution rates have gone higher and higher and if this continues for long, apocalypse is not far from today. We need to change our lifestyle, drastically, and by change, we mean to put it into immediate effect. Every problem is inter- connected and it is a series of loopholes that causes such chaos in the society. All we need to do is work on the weak links that might cause harm to the society.
In the transportation sector, we can start by changing the way we commute. Cars and buses are the primary means to commute in the big cities, even if the destination is very close. To begin with, we can change the mode itself. For first mile commute or last mile commute, or even if the distance is less, we can use bicycles to travel to the destination. Bicycles are the ideal way to commute, as it has many fold benefits for the riders. Firstly, it helps you cut down on the expenses, which you would incur generally on the motor vehicles. There is hardly any expense you would incur while you ride a bicycle. It requires no fuels, so the rising prices of petrol and diesel would not be a problem for you. The cycles would just run on human power. The next benefit for the rider is that it helps you beat the heavy congestion on the roads. Cycles do not take up a lot of space, and rather helps you move swiftly even in heavy traffic and move towards your destination quicker. You will always be on time. Thirdly, bicycles are eco- friendly in nature. They do not release any harmful gases as they do not feed on the fuels like cars or other motor vehicles. Bonus reason, Cycling is a fun exercise and it helps you remain fit and has many health benefits, and more importantly helps you lose weight with ease. When cycling has so many benefits for the rider, I do not think it is wise for a rider to choose any other mode of commute.
