The City of Bhubaneswar, a 2023 Sustainable Transport Award Honorable Mention, has been a significant mover in green and equitable urban mobility since 2018, following the modernizations of its Mo Bus electric bus service and its Mo E-Ride three-wheeler feeder system. Bhubaneswar Is the capital of the State of Odisha in India and forms one of the Golden Triangle of Tourism nodes in the State, along with the neighboring towns of Puri and Konark. The urban center, home to over a million people, is perhaps best known as the “Temple City” for being the site of hundreds of historic temples dating back centuries. Today, it is one of the fastest-expanding cities in India, growing by 30% from 2011 to 2021. Aside from being a hub for tourism, culture, and history, Bhubaneswar is now recognized for its innovative, forward-thinking efforts to improve mobility and urban connectivity across the region.
