Urban Transport

Urban Transport

Urban transport systems are crucial to economic and social development, and are particularly important for connecting poor populations to jobs, education, and health services. As the developing world rapidly urbanizes, there is an opportunity to build safer, cleaner, and more inclusive transport systems. The aim of OBA transport projects is to improve access of low-income communities to economic opportunities and services. OBA principles can be used to address many of the common shortcomings of subsidy systems in urban transport through upgrading of regulated transport services; regulation and improvement of unregulated services which could help in making transport more affordable for the poor and improve the transport infrastructure.
