ABSTRACT
This paper analyzes the transport sector in Himachal Pradesh. The paper finds that transport management in the state is totally out of gear with high congestion at major tourist areas, lack of parking facilities, high rate of accidents and pollution due to vehicular movement. It is argued that most of the problems could be solved with the introduction of economic instruments like taxation on old polluting vehicles, incentives that discourage private ownership and use of vehicles, subsidizing use of public transport and integrating transport with urban planning.
