Abstract: This paper maps and explains the institutional structure of urban transportation policy in Bangalore, India. Our critique of individual agencies and methods of policymaking and implementation will demonstrate how the current setup negatively affects urban transportation planning in Bangalore. We close with suggestions about broad institutional changes that we believe would improve outcomes and service delivery.

Keywords: urban transport; infrastructure; institutional analysis; governance; Bangalore; India; policy making; transport planning; service delivery; mass transport; public transport.
