Meh Zin started this petition to Mumbai City council and

Everywhere around Mumbai we see Traffic. It is evident that a change is required but what is the first step? How do we go Green? For many Mumbaikars love to cycle but fear getting run down on the roads due to the rash bus drivers and auto rickshaws who are lane cutting and speeding. Many women also desist from getting on their cycles due to various obvious reasons. So a change however big has to start small and with your help we can begin. We request the MMRDA, the BMC and the Mumbai city council to give us a dedicated lane for cyclists in the city. Starting with Bandra and Khar West in Mumbai. 

Many developed countries have this, like in Germany, France, Belgium, & Spain  and the cyclists feel safe & many people have made the switch and go to work on their cycles. It combats pollution, reduces your carbon footprint and best of all you get fit while you commute!

A cycle track is an exclusive bike facility that combines the user experience of a separated path with the on-street infrastructure of a conventional bike lane. A cycle track is physically separated from motor traffic and distinct from the sidewalk. Cycle tracks have different forms but all share common elements—they provide space that is intended to be exclusively or primarily used for bicycles, and are separated from motor vehicle travel lanes, parking lanes, and sidewalks. In situations where on-street parking is allowed cycle tracks are located to the curb-side of the parking (in contrast to bike lanes).

Cycle tracks may be one-way or two-way, and may be at street level, at sidewalk level, or at an intermediate level. If at sidewalk level, a curb or median separates them from motor traffic, while different pavement color/texture separates the cycle track from the sidewalk. If at street level, they can be separated from motor traffic by raised medians, on-street parking, or bollards. By separating cyclists from motor traffic, cycle tracks can offer a higher level of security than bike lanes and are attractive to a wider spectrum of the public.

Your one signature can be significant in turning the scenery of this city around. Pls sign and share widely!

Thank you!

Go Green.
