Rethinking Mobility (Urban Transport Policy) in Pakistan
Publication Year : 2020

In essence, a city is an urban labor market (see Bertaud, 2018). For a city to function efficiently as a labor market and also provide for the needs of its residents, universal design is critical. Successful cities represent opportunities that in turn draw talent to the labor pool. The inflow of jobseekers causes congestion, an effect that is manageable with effective mobility options. However, accessibility and mobility themselves are a product of how a city is laid out.
