The report has been in collaboration with Bangalore Political Action Committee

Bounce and QuickRide also participated in the report, along with 500 other stakeholders

The companies recommend public-private partnerships to build a strong transport network

Cab-hailing giant Uber, in collaboration with Bangalore Political Action Committee (B.PAC), has reached out to the Karnataka government to set up a secure data sharing mechanism to allow private players and citizen groups share insights from travel and transport data. The duo believes that this would help key stakeholders recognise mobility patterns, understand the challenges on the ground through numbers and help unclog the roads in India's most congested city.

Besides this, the group has urged the government to allow cab and taxis aggregators to operate in the state legally within the ambit of the existing contract carriage permit rules.
