MOU Signing Trans Karachi

TransKarachi – a public sector company established and owned by the Government of Sindh to carry out the project implementation of the $504 million Karachi Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Red Line – has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Team UrbanTech Pakistan at Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS). Following the collaboration, TransKarachi and LUMS will take initiatives to become true advocates of gender equity in public transport by collaborating on technological interventions, trainings, lectures, seminars, other capacity-building programs and awareness campaigns focused on smooth urban mobility and gender mainstreaming. The two parties will also work on research projects and papers by executing joint surveys, focus group discussions and interviews to address and prevent sexual harassment and gender-based violence and gauge the effectiveness of legal remedies and redressal mechanisms.
