Intermediate Public Transport (IPT) caters to 17% of the daily trips in Lucknow. This short report offers an overview of IPT vehicles i.e. auto-rickshaws, tempos and e-rickshaws in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. The team conducted a survey in Lucknow, covering 322 IPT drivers to understand their vehicular, operational and economic characteristics. It also collects insights into the mobility landscape of Lucknow through stakeholders’ perceptions. This study provides data for transport planners and policymakers to effectively plan IPT services in the city, and to gauge their electrification potential.
More than three fourth of tempo and autorickshaw drivers earn more than INR 800 daily, compared to 47 per cent of e-rickshaw drivers.
