ANCIENT ROAD TRANSPORT:

HAND-PULLED RICKSHAWS:
Handpulled rickshaw is still available in the city of Kolkata where in a person pulls 
the rickshawby hand. 
The Government of West Bengal proposed a ban on these rickshaws 
in 2005 describing them as "inhuman". 
Though a bill aiming to address this issue, termed as 'Calcutta Hackney Carriage Bill', 
was passed by the West Bengal Assembly in 2006, it has not been implemented yet.  
The Government of West Bengal is working on an amendment of this bill to avoid the
 loopholes that got exposed when the Hand pulled Rickshaw Owner's 
Association filed a petition against the bill.Being cheap to build-it takes as much or little as Rs 3000-6000 to build one-, run and maintain, it soon became a popular way of earning for those with extremely minimal resources. It is all but made of wood, iron and tin, weighing about a 100 kgs and physical human effort being the only fuel to power it.

PALANQUIN
A palanquin, also known as palki, derived its name from the Sanskrit word ‘Palanki' for a bed or couch. A palki was bigger in size and made of wood. There were doors on both sides. A long cylindrical pole was attached to it  and lengthways through the middle. A palki is carried by six or four men, known as Beharas, bearers of special caste or class who held the pole at both ends. Palanquin as a mode of transport began to decline from the mid-nineteenth century when steamer and rail communications started and general transportation began to improve. With the development of roads and highways and increasing use of animal carts and carriages the palanquin as a means of transport faced extinction. 
After this auto rickshaws were introduced. Palanquin is used today also in places like Vaishanavdevi.


AUTO RICKSHAWS:
It was  Bajaj auto limited, who started auto rickshaws in India. Petrol auto rickshaws produce a lot of pollution and thus health related diseases occurs. 
That's why Electric rickshaws has been introduced in India  and people prefer it more than other mode of transportation. 
To cater to the increasing population in the region, combined with pollution, the passenger rickshaw can be termed to be the best mode of transportation to be introduced.
There are two kinds of auto rickshaws used in India. Battery autorickshaws and simple ones in which one has to paddle then just like a bicycle.
Reasons for using them are:
•Traffic rush
•Less maintenance cost.(In case of bicycle ones almost zero cost)
•Less buying cost.
•Good for short distances
•More profit due to less maintenance cost.
Apart from this , there are good  freight services ( both offline and online booking available )  which helps in the delivery of goods across various destinations .

ANCIENT ROAD TRANSPORT-POST INDEPENDENCE-PART2

By Shreya → Sunday, 7 May 2017
The basic modes of transportation are land, air, and water. In the modern era, a part of our research is how to make these modes smoother, better and faster for travel and transportation. The roads being the main mode of land transport. In this article, we will take a look on various types of road transport and its uses.


BICYCLES:
Bicycles, or cycles have ownership rates ranging from around 30% to 70% at the state level. Along with walking, cycling accounts for 50 to 75% of the commuter trips for those in the 
informal sector in urban areas.The government is also taking up initiatives to encourage people to travel by cycles rather than in seperate cars in order the decrease the population.



CYCLE-RICKSHAWS:

Cycle rickshaws were introduced in India in the 1940s. They are bigger than a tricycle where two people sit on an elevated seat at the back and a person pedals from the front. In the late 2000s, they were banned in several cities for causing traffic congestion. Cycle rickshaws have been a feature of Delhi streets since Indian independence in 1947, providing the cheapest way around the capital. In addition, environmentalists have supported the  cycle rickshaws as a non-polluting and inexpensive mode of transport.
The driver pedals in front of the passenger seat, though some vehicles have the driver in the rear. Cycle rickshaws are widely used all over Asia, where they have largely replaced less-efficient hand-pulled rickshaw that required the driver to walk or run while pulling the vehicle.
Rickshaws are environmentally friendly.
Cycle rickshaws are often hailed as environmentally-friendly, inexpensive modes of transport. Many cities in developing countries are highly polluted. The main reasons are the air and noise pollution caused by transport vehicles, especially petrol-powered two and three wheelers. For example, in India there are close to 18 million petrol- powered two wheelers and about 1.5 million petrol and diesel powered three wheelers. These vehicles are increasing in number at the rate of about 15% per year.

BULLOCK-CART:
During the early civilization man used the animal power in his service. Like some other animals his bullocks carried his loads.  In order to draw better service from the bullocks, man invented the bullock-cart.
 the bullock-cart can move both on the roads and on the out of the way places. The bullock-carts can go to such places to which other sorts of wheeled traffic cannot move. Hence, the transport of goods depend very much on the bullock-carts. The making income-group can possess bullock-carts for themselves.
But there are some disadvantages also.The bullock-cart is quite slow in its speed. It has to depend upon the patient and healthy bullocks. If the bullocks get tired or sick, the cart cannot work. If the bullocks get unruly on the way, the cart and the cart-man surely run into danger.
