Rainbow BRT School Outreach sessions in Pune

RnRRainbow BRT Promotion and Outreach programme in schools focusses on engaging students in activities to understand the need for sustainable urban transportation. Students learns about the causes and impacts of the present modes of transportation, that  are fuel intensive, cause congestion and unsafe conditions on roads and lead to pollution. Students connect with Rainbow Kids Rohan and Ruta, learn about good behaviour on roads, interpret data through graphs, think of causes and impacts and make connections between the different sets of data. Students then share their learnings with their friends. And further, through a colourful presentation learn about Rainbow BRT which is soon to start operations near their school.  The school outreach programme has reached out to 15 schools along the Nagar Road and Alandi Road corridors in Pune in July 2015:
