Akshay BD, Head-Public Policy, UBER at Elets 10th Smart City Summit, New Delhi.
“Cities until now were built on the backbone of water, land, etc. But we are building future smart cities, they will be built on the backbone of public transit. We can play a pivotal role as a technology company facilitating mobility in cities around the world. Digitising some of the transportation networks within the city is really important as it is highly inefficient for a car to just have one person in it when we talk about travel. This is because car ownership has skyrocketed in a decade or so.”
