In the world's emerging markets, public transportation and infrastructure development cannot keep pace with the mobility needs of their fast-growing populations and expanding commercial enterprises. Can we anticipate potential issues, build upon existing platforms and initiatives, and create a sustainable multi-modal transportation system for the future?
As a port city and logistics hub, Da Nang serves as the entrance to the Indochina East-West Economic Corridor. Because of this location and its trajectory for future growth, Da Nang, like many other cities undergoing rapid urbanization, is preparing to deal with unsustainable traffic gridlock, air quality deterioration, and safety and security challenges.
To address these issues, TMF and its partner, Da Nang's People Committee (DPC) are collaborating with multiple stakeholders through the Project on Urban Transit Corridor Improvement to develop a public transportation network that will increase mobility options, apply advanced technology solutions, and become a model for other developing urban areas.
