Despite possessing a big network of trains, the population so exceeds the services that getting in and out of the trains is nothing short of a miracle at peak hours. Yes, peak-hour trains carry more than twice the maximum design capacity of the trains.This means that many passengers are forced to hang perilously outside the train while the ones lucky to be inside are standing back-to-back packed like a tin of sardines.However in a country where the per capita income is roughly 750 dollars, the cost of public transport cannot be increased. This puts tremendous pressure on the railways which is already reeling under the load of reduced productivity and inflated costs.The same is the case with the buses. Buses being overstuffed with passengers have to negotiate extremely congested narrow streets. With no special rights of way, they have to compete with a mixed array of other vehicles as well.
