Following their 2022 Sustainable Transport Award Honorable Mention, the City of Peshawar has made remarkable progress in their rollout of BRT services built around equitable planning and design processes. These advancements have earned them a second Honorable Mention recognition in 2024. Now, approaching a Phase 2 rollout of their public transport strategy, Peshawar is poised to elevate regional mobility by extending bus routes, formalizing sector operations, and integrating electric vehicles. 

Join us for a webinar shedding light on Peshawar’s transformative Bus Industry Restructuring Program (BIRP) and the next steps for their system. Learn how this initiative revolutionizes public transport while enhancing non-motorized modes, such as biking and walking.

This event will feature live interpretations in Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, and Bahasa Indonesia.
