It gives me immense pleasure to present the third annual report of TransPeshawar (TP). I feel privileged being one of the pioneer employees of this organization and currently to a staff of 61 employees and several outsourcing partners. It’s been exciting to see TransPeshawar growing and managing all the challenges. After the successful inauguration of BRT Peshawar on 13th August,2020 the system comes as a great resolve to provide safe, affordable, inclusive and reliable transport for the residents of the city.
The project is significant and designed to be accessible to all members of the community, may these be working professionals, businessmen, students, household women, children, wheelchair users, people with disabilities and the elderly who are often not served well by the old transport services. This 3rd Generation Bus Rapid Transit is first of its kind in entire Pakistan. This system serves as a lifeline for the residents of Peshawar in their daily lives, especially for those with low income and students. Peshawar BRT offers several unique features such as Bike sharing system (last mile connectivity through bicycles), Mobile app for passengers to plan journey & find the real-time location of buses/bicycles, payment of fares through a mobile application, and environmentally friendly hybrid diesel-electric buses to ensure safe and secure travel.
The response of general public since start of operation of Peshawar BRT has been tremendous. The daily ridership is witnessing an increase on the daily basis and has crossed 250,000 passengers/day. Peshawar BRT has been praised by different national and international institutions for the quality of services, gender inclusiveness and user friendliness for differently abled persons.
As a Chief Executive Officer, I sincerely hope and wish that together with the support of Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, our partners, consultants, and TransPeshawar team, we are able to deliver the best of transportation services for citizens of Peshawar.
