Challenge 2: Transport

Buses carry 49 per cent of commuters in Dhaka, while cars provide transport for just 13 per cent. There are 33 times more cars than buses on the streets though.

In addition, buses are often overcrowded, and many women do not feel safe on them. CNGs and rickshaws are often either difficult to find or expensive. With limited space on the roads, introducing new buses alone will not solve the problem.
