    40 vehicles per 1,000 people in 1976 to 821 in 2022

    City's expansive road network spans 14,000 km

    Vehicle-to-population ratio in Bengaluru stands at 1:12

Bengaluru Traffic Police have disclosed that, despite all efforts, the average driving speed in Bengaluru barely exceeds 18 kmph. Known as the Silicon Valley of India and infamous for its traffic jams, the city has experienced a significant decrease in driving speeds due to various disruptions, ongoing road works, and frequent vehicle breakdowns.

Bengaluru boasts the highest vehicle population among cities, with an astonishing 827 vehicles per 1,000 people. This surpasses Mumbai’s 220, Delhi’s 320, and even New York’s 539 vehicles per 1,000 populations. Over the years, Bengaluru’s vehicular population has steadily risen from a modest 40 vehicles per 1,000 people in 1976 to an impressive 821 in 2022.

The city’s expansive road network spans 14,000 km, accommodating a staggering 1.2 crore registered vehicles. Additionally, Bengaluru holds the record for the highest number of private cars in the entire country.

Private vehicles constitute 34 per cent, public transport covers 32 per cent, autos contribute 7 per cent, and non-motorised transport claims 27 per cent of the overall vehicle landscape, according to data from Bengaluru Traffic Police.

Bengaluru grapples with 14,000 intersections, including 400 signalised intersections and 600 manned intersections. Notably, over 70 per cent of vehicles navigating the city’s roads are two-wheelers, accompanied by 6,400 buses.

Interestingly, the vehicle-to-population ratio in Bengaluru stands at 1:12, in stark contrast to Delhi’s 1:20. The city’s dynamic traffic landscape reflects the intricate interplay between its burgeoning population and the surge in vehicular growth.
