Happy Street is an initiative by The Times of India which encourages people to use nonmotorized transport and to come out onto the streets to socialize every Sunday morning through a wide array of activities.

The road selected for Happy Street is blocked for 3-4 hours in the morning on Sundays to turn it into a free space where anyone can walk, jog, cycle or just stroll around with a loved one, rediscover the simple pleasures of playing any game. The Times of India partners with District Tourism Council and AP Police to create a Happy Streets.

The initiative aims to highlight problems typical of any city - cars usurping roads, shrinking space for pedestrians and cyclists and air pollution shooting up.
