This report presents a vision for the transportation system of Lahore twenty years ahead with strategies and recommendations for realization of that vision. It is based on the premise that transportation systems are developed to help achieve societal goals and transport planning and projects can both support and catalyze change. The aim is to provide a blueprint for Lahore’s transportation system which supports a dynamic vision for Lahore and the strategies aim to reverse the existing upward trends in auto-dependence, environment degradation, in order to make Lahore, a vibrant city. We envision a transport planning system that enhances opportunities for recreation; makes education, business and travel a pleasure, and facilitates the emergence of an integrated transport network that makes Lahore a regional hub.
