It’s high time to shift from Conventional Planning to Compressive and Multi Modal Planning. The present paradigm shift in Europe to focus on mobility as a service has to be acknowledged and incorporated in the Transportation system of developing country such as India. The travel has to be now smarter and sustainable. All the three pillars of sustainability i.e. economic, social and environmental have to be equally carried forward. Proper planning or design is the one which always takes into account the needs of people and also the environment associated with it. The sole purpose of a Central business district is economic activity and any measure should depict this. The paper looks at the transportation system of the Kashmir valley in depth in relation with the central business district. Modal share and variation of Mass transit in the morning and evening peak hour is determined and studied. Based upon the analysis and keeping in view the ageing population as well as needs of disabled a new smarter and sustainable transport is designed for the Kashmir valley having its own bespoke bus service. The bus service is then designed for headway, seating capacity as well as field and management staff. This paper emphasises that public transport is the only solution to the various transportation problems and their allied effects such as Environmental Impact, Social Inclusion, Old aged population, etc
