Buses most preferred mode of transport in India: Survey
A Survey by National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO) revealed that Buses are the most preferred mode of transport in both rural and urban India followed by auto rickshaws.

“Bus/tram is the most reported means of transport both in rural and urban area. About 66 per cent households in rural areas and 62 per cent households in urban areas reported expenditure on this particular mode,” the survey said.

Trams have been clubbed with buses in a single category in the report titled, ‘Key Indicators of Household Expenditure on Services and Durable Goods’ in the 2014-15 survey.

According to the study, auto rickshaws are used by about 38 per cent rural households and about 47 per cent urban households. Taxi, railways and rickshaw are the other major modes of transport, both in rural and urban areas, as per the survey.
Expenditure on bus/tram, auto rickshaw, taxi and train constitute more than 90 per cent of the total expenditure on transport both in rural and urban areas.
Expenditure on air transport is negligible in rural areas while air transport accounts for 2.53 per cent of all transport expenditures in urban areas.
The report is based on information collected during July, 2014 to June 2015 as part of National Sample Survey, 72nd Round.
