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.
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.
