The city sees a huge increase in the number of private vehicles on the road. It is to be done that new roads and pathways are developed because at the moment the roads of Guwahati are very congested and need for new ones are obvious.

Then it is to be spread as an awareness that people should consider public transport an option, most people do not like to travel on public transport due to the unruliness that comes with it, we can take example from Indore's BRTS system
