The Project

In Singra in Bangladesh there is a lack of proper public transportation systems within the city. Privately owned, illegal rickshaw updates (electri-faction) led to a safety issue with increasing accidents. The city now promotes e-rickshaws as public and emergency health transport. The project aims to improve the city’s public transportation system as well as the health services and make the streets safer. Singra citizens and municipality will benefit from the new system.
