Public transport and real estate prices
One of the reasons why real estate prices in Mumbai are very high, is because mumbai has an excellent public transport system which almost everyone can afford. It is possible to travel a distance of 30 km or more for less than Rs 30 while in a small town like Panaji, for a distance of less than 10 km the rickshaw drivers are charging Rs 200 and there is no direct bus available. There is also very less information about the buses available in goa, there are a large number of private operators and no details of the routes which they are taking.
When affordable and reliable public transport is not available in small towns, it becomes more expensive to commute to work, and also businesses find it difficult to get low cost workers
So if the leaders of a particular place want it to get developed they should develop a reliable public transport system.
