CONNECT Karo

Welcome to connectkaro.org!

CONNECTKaro is part of a global series of events focused on sustainable transport that the EMBARQ Network organizes and hosts. This year CONNECTKaro was hosted in Bangalore on 10th and 11th March, 2014, and included a key note address by Mr. Guillermo Penalosa, Executive Director, 8-80 cities; Dr. Dario Hidalgo, Director of Research and Practice, EMBARQ; Dr. Bimal Patel, President, CEPT University.

This website will give you more information about the happenings of the event and insight into various sessions.


According to Gil Penalosa, “We cannot continue to deceive ourselves thinking that to paint a little line on a road is a bike way. A bicycle way that is not safe for an 8-year old is not a bicycle way". Watch Gil, a keynote speaker at CONNECTKaro 2014, talk about cycle paths and open spaces.
