Karachi is constantly evolving but, unfortunately, city planning has failed to keep up with the metro’s changing dynamics. How can we move past ‘solutions’ such as signal-free corridors, which benefit only a segment of the citizenry, and towards urban mobility planning that is more people-centric?

There is a seemingly never-ending traffic jam at a signal during rush hour. Buses are jam-packed, even during the coronavirus pandemic. And most vehicles are at a standstill; the exceptions being motorbikes that miraculously manage to find ways to move forward.
