Background:

Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh is the economic and political center of the country with output equivalent to 36% of the country’s entire GDP. Its population density is over 45 thousand per square Kilometer. Urban Transport in the Dhaka City is heavily lenient on road traffic and the fixed modes of travel. Unavailability of appropriate Mass Transit System provokes the city dwellers to use more and more private vehicles. This situation brings about serious traffic congestion in the city. All the issues require the improvement of the urban public transport by introducing Mass Rapid Transit, popularly known as Metro Rail.

Objective:
  • Development of an efficient and effective transport system in Dhaka.
  • Provide easy public transport facilities for the people.
  • Development of safe and environment friendly transport system.
