Public and goods transportation is the backbone of economic activity. Efficient and rapid transportation system stimulates and generates economic productivity. Whereas rail transportation is the most economical mode for inter-urban goods transportation, it is also the fastest mode of urban mass public transportation for cities of population exceeding around 3 million. Similarly, air transportation is the fastest mode of long distance transportation of people and goods. In the 21st century, it is impossible to think of a modern and economically vibrant country without an efficient and extensive transportation network.
