dc.description.abstractThe Islamic Republic of Pakistan like most other developing countries is facing the issue of rapid traffic growth in metropolitan cities. The capital city Islamabad and its neighboring city Rawalpindi have seen an exponential increase in traffic demand in the last few years. The main reason for this growth is population outbursts due to the migration of people from other areas for better living standards. Other than population, an increase in car ownership due to affordable car financing/leasing schemes, and a lack of a proper public transport system cause an increase in the number of vehicles on the road. The main objective of this study is to review the exiting urban transport system of Islamabad and Rawalpindi City, the impact of COVID19 on urban mobility, and determine the Sustainable Urban Transport Index (SUTI) for both Cities.
