President's Message:

Dear Transportation Professionals,

Transportation Research Group of India (TRG) has completed a successful journey of more than one decade since its inception. During this journey it has brought along many eminent researchers, academicians, field practitioners /engineers and policy decision makers from India as well as other countries working in the different sectors of transportation by providing them an excellent forum for interchange of ideas.

The Government of India has given a massive push to transportation infrastructure development incorporating the latest technology and innovation. This necessitates various research activities and capacity building programs to fulfill the need of technology and skilled manpower. Various technical committees of TRG (TCTs) are playing an active role in this regard by organizing the webinars, workshops and symposia throughout the year at regional and national level. Further, the activities like hackathons, doctoral research symposium, training workshops, etc. are also being initiated to encourage the participation of budding researchers.

TRG is open for different types of membership and I appeal to all transportation professionals within India as well as outside, to become its members and be partner to this important endeavour. Further your active participation in various TRG activities including biennially conferences, workshops, seminars, webinars, etc. announced through website, and other digital media (like LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.) will be of great help to increase the interaction among researchers, practitioners, and policy makers.

Best Wishes,
Prof. Akhilesh Kumar Maurya, IIT Guwahati
President, TRG

Description of TRG Logo:

Dear Transportation Professionals, The tri-colour in the background of logo depicts the Indian identity of TRG. The figures of pedestrian and bi-cycle symbolizes sustainable transport, and the same along with Compulsory Direction Signs of Traffic Engg. conveys that the road to sustainable transportation future is compulsorily or inevitably through Transportation Research Group of India (TRG). The symbols on the left hand side of the logo conveys that the focus of TRG is on all modes (road, rail, air, and water transport), and their green colour depicts that the emphasis is on greener policies, strategies, and technologies.

Dear Transportation Professionals,
This is a typical image of traffic congestion on our city streets that I picked-up from a news paper. But have we ever tried to find.. How Many People Are There To Create This Congestion?
I counted and here is what I found:

- Cars = 37 => People in cars = 56 (assuming 1.5 person per car average)
- Auto Rickshaw = 15 => People in Auto = 23
- Motor Bikes = 30. People on Motor Bikes = 37

So, the total number of people congesting this entire stretch of road is JUST 116. Not really a lot.
So, what does it say?

- All these people in congestion could just fit into JUST 2 to 3 buses.
- Cars, which are occupying 70% of the road space can just be fit into ONE bus!
- There are atleast 20 people walking on the road, who are barely visible nor occupy any road space.

Let us go 'Car Free' this Thursday and then see the difference. Come, be part of the Car Free Thursday - Hyderabad initiative and experience a whole new world - free of traffic congestion, air pollution or traffic jams. Come, choose to go by bus, cycle or walk or simple share a ride with colleague!

Please visit our FB page for more details on alternate commute options Are you going car free tomorrow? tweet your experience @CarFreeThursday #Greencyberabad
