    This aim is to modernize the transport system which today depends on a large share of old passenger vehicles.

    Activities: (2012 - 2020)
    The programme will undertake the following set of activities:

    • Revitalization of the public transport system in greater Beirut through improvements in the public bus fleet and the implementation of dedicated lanes for buses. The objective is to reach a level where 50% of passenger-trips are travelled by public transportation.
    • Car-scrapping programme (40 000 old vehicles)
    • Development of intercity rail connection between the north of the country and Beirut
