Zu Peshawar has emerged as a successful model in terms of inclusion, diversity, and access because the system is tailored to address societal gaps. Since its inception in August 2022, it has revolutionized Peshawar, Pakistan and its transportation landscape, replacing outdated and environmentally harmful vehicles with a modern third generation BRT System under TransPeshawar’s management.
