Integrated Transport Planning Ltd. (ITP) was appointed by the World Bank to work with the Dhaka Transport Coordination Authority (DTCA) and support its efforts to take on new organizational responsibilities for transportation policy, regulation, coordination, planning and management for the Greater Dhaka. To achieve this, the project team deployed anaccessibility-mapping tool, and provided technical tools and training in order to build the capacity of the DTCA team in relation to: Using the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS), and associated open sourcesoftware tools, as the basis for maintaining a record of all public transport routes and services in the Greater Dhaka region. Transport data management good practices that enable the DTCA team to take ownership and coordinate responsibility for transport datasets currently spread across team member’s laptops and local/international consultancy teams. Using the open source Transport Analyst software tool as the basis for visualising public transport accessibility in Dhaka and evaluating the impacts of new routes/scenarios, as well as visualising reported inequalities in public transport access for females. This final report sets out the key findings from this project, and has been structured around the following sections: Chapter 2 provides an overview of the project’s objectives and the methodology adopted by the project team to address them. Chapter 3 summarises the capacity-building activities delivered by the project teamthrough collaborative working with colleagues at DTCA and other transport agencies inDhaka. It highlights process learning recommendations that may be relevant for future similar projects in other locations. Chapter 4 presents our analytical findings, conclusions, and recommendations in respect of females’ accessibility in Dhaka and the impact of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) / MRT (Metro Rapid Transit) line proposals being implemented. Chapter 5 summarises conclusions and recommendations drawn from this study, including possible next steps for supporting further open transport data capacity building within the DTCA team.
