Abstract: Mass rapid transit system (MRTS) have been provided in major cities in developed countries to improve public transportation system. There is a huge potential of reducing CO2 emissions from transportation sector, particularly from projects like MRTS. Further, there are growing opportunities for various public transportation projects to earn carbon credits under CDM(Clean development mechanism) as per provisions of Kyoto Protocol. Using proposed methodology, reduction in CO2 due to MRTS and other public transportation projects can be estimated conveniently, and also estimate other emissions(CO, HC, SPM/PM10 and NOX) from other similar public transportation related projects.
