The Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (GoKP) has been working over the last two years to develop institutional structure for urban renewal, which is fit for the 21 century with a focus initially on Peshawar. Peshawar is a city of over 1.6 million with the population expected to increase to 3 million by 2030.

One of the major problems in urban mobility is the lack of quality transport, which hinders economic development, and impacts the quality of life on daily basis. The current provision of transport is mainly provided by informal public transport facilities composed mainly of large and medium size buses and popular pick ups. These provide 70% of the total transport demand but represent only 43% of the traffic. The bus fleet is in decay, bus stops are rudimentary, ticketing system is obsolete; operators compete for passengers worsening congestion and impairing safety particularly for female and young passengers.

The organisational framework for urban transport is fragmented with overlapping responsibilities between provincial and local/district level with at least 14 departments/ agencies involved with their own priorities. Transforming transport as part of urban renewal can assist and act as incentive for inward investment and economic regeneration.
