From a fishing town of less than half a million inhabitants in 1947, Karachi has grown into a thriving metropolis of 6 million. The average annual growth rate of 6 per cent since the early 1960s has resulted in increasing problems in city services, particularly passenger transport. This chapter identifies some of the major problems besetting Karachi’s transport system and, based on an analysis of household data, suggests some remedies to ease the situation.
