Summary

This initiative targets communities in Tripoli, who face numerous challenges accessing reliable and affordable transportation. This initiative also has a significant impact on women's mobility, who often face barriers to accessing transportation due to social and cultural norms. Ultimately, promoting public transportation culture in Tripoli has the potential to improve the quality of life for all its residents, reduce traffic congestion, and promote sustainable development in the city.

Challenge

Tripoli is the second-largest city in Lebanon, with a population of around 500,000 people. Tripoli has a significant population of low-income residents who may struggle to afford private transportation. The city's road network is often congested, particularly during peak hours, which can lead to delays and increased travel times. Many residents do not have access to private transportation, which can make it difficult to access essential services like healthcare, education, and employment.

Solution

Promoting public transportation culture in Tripoli is crucial to improving the daily lives of its residents, especially those who rely on public transportation to commute to work, market, universities, or school. Our aim to have 6 routes to cover Tripoli and surrounding, with more than 30 buses will bridge the gap and improve social integration, also has a significant impact on women's mobility, who often face barriers accessing transportation due to social and cultural norms.

Long-Term Impact

1- Increase access to education, job opportunities, and healthcare, which can reduce poverty and promote economic growth in the community 2- Integrating different neighborhoods and suburbs into the public transportation system, can help to reduce tensions 3- Reduce traffic congestion 4- Reduce air pollution that lead to a more peaceful and pleasant environment 5- Creating job opportunities for drivers, conductors, maintenance staff, and other related positions 6- reduce noise pollution
