The proposed project will help develop a sustainable urban transport system in Peshawar by delivering the city's first integrated BRT corridor, directly benefiting 0.5 million people. The project will comprise two interlinked outputs: (i) the construction of a 26-kilometer (km) BRT corridor and associated facilities, and (ii) effective project management and sustainable BRT operations through institutional developments. The project is economically justified by major time savings for future BRT passengers, vehicle operating cost savings, better air quality, and carbon emissions savings, which will improve the health of Peshawar's citizens and mitigate climate change. The project will also make Peshawar more livable and safe, boost private sector investment, and foster gender equity.
