Vientiane Sustainable Urban Transportation Plan
Otak is working in Vientiane, Laos, as a subconsultant to Oriental Consulting Global (Japan) to support the development and launch of the country’s first Bus Rapid Transit project in 2022. Otak is providing advice based on our expertise in public transport management and Bus Rapid Transit operations, having worked closely with C-TRAN (Clark County, Washington’s transport agency) to plan and launch the Portland, OR/Vancouver, WA metro region’s first Bus Rapid Transit project in 2017. The project also includes providing legal/institutional recommendations for establishing an entity for managing traffic, parking, and public transportation in Vientiane as well as developing a capacity building and training program for staffing the new entity.
