Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to the determination of Combined Exposure Factor (CEF) of different transport-related environmental pollutants by assessing air quality and noise levels.
Design/methodology/approach: The CEF takes into account the potential relative uptake of each pollutant (CO, NO, NO2, O3, SO2, PM10 and PM2.5) by considering the boarding and alighting of commuters at Public Transport facility.
Findings: Combined exposure to environmental pollutants is determined based on the CEF has been estimated for South Delhi area.
Originality/value: Knowledge of exposure factor due to air and noise pollutant is not known for Delhi city.
Keywords: Public health; Sustainable development; Developing country; Exposure factor
