  1. As per recommendations of the WHO, Geneva reports UN/WHO pollution in Karachi the motor cycles are large polluters, with the highest number of injuries/death on the roads. With positive initiatives of the Govt., Public transport has improved, as shuttle coach which operates on timings on reduced charges, and yet its economically viable. Motor Cycle ride Hailing services as Bykea, Careem are operating which has to improve. But every individual self employed or work there is a need to restrain from using motor cycle. Rather Bicycle should be encouraged as it is free from pollution. Allocation of Bicycle track will bring confidence for bikers boys, girls riding bicycles to work and for recreation in the city.
