USING BUS RAPID TRANSIT TO ACHIEVE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS IN SUDAN
Many countries worldwide, regardless of their location and whether it is a developed country or developing country face severe problems like congestion and environmental issues. These problems have many local impacts like accidents, delays and decreased economic activity, but also, they have some global implications like destroying the ozone shield.
Therefore, sustainable transportation systems are needed urgently to ensure that current and next generations both will have a good quality of life. This paper provides an early assessment of using BRT to achieve sustainable development goals in Sudan. This study explored a proposed BRT line in Khartoum State from Ombada to Karkar station as a case study. It was
found that this BRT route can reduce 74.25%, 98.48% and 90.37% of the amount of Carbon dioxide (CO2), Methane (CH4) and Nitrous oxide (N2O) respectively which will help Sudan to achieve sustainable development goals especially targets 3.6, 11.2 and 11.6.
