Bikes vs Cars? Which is better for a city like Kathmandu?
Traffic jam ma suneko hola “Bike le garda jam huncha”. Bike wala le “Micro le garda bhancha”. Micro le “Private car le” bhancha. What is your thought?
Here’s my opinion: If we remove all cars and replaced them with bikes there would be no traffic jam. However, if we simply removed the bikes there would still be traffic jam in Kathmandu. Every crowded city should optimize their throughput by giving priority to high occupancy modes of transport. So I think Kathmandu should give priority to pedestians first, bicycles second, public transport third, motorbikes fourth and cars last.
